The MHRA urgently require breast surgeons of all backgrounds to join their expert register and would like to invite ABS members to join the MHRA Register of Experts. As the UK Competent Authority for medical devices, it is important that the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) maintains an up to date Register of Experts to undertake assessments of applications for clinical investigations of new or modified medical devices. They also utilise their external experts for specific ‘ad hoc’ advice from time to time. They have current projects with which they urgently require assistance. Anyone interested in these roles should contact Sarah Garnham for more information and to apply (Sarah.Garnham@mhra.gov.uk). A flat fee of £800 is payable per assignment.
Possible conflicts of Interest can include having been previously employed by the manufacturer responsible for an application, having personal ties with the principal clinicians or the manufacturer involved with a proposed study or working within close proximity to/within a proposed clinical investigation study site etc.
