Drug Safety

Managing Drug Safety is carried out for following Product Categories;

Pharmaceutical Prescription Medicine

The law defines a medicine as having to have a physiological effect on the body, whether it is used to prevent, treat or diagnose conditions or interfering with the normal operation of the body.

Pharmacovigilance in clinical trials – handling SUSARs during trials; annual reports; safety management in interventional and non- interventional studies.

Medical Devices

The term ‘medical device’ covers all products used in healthcare for the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring or treatment of illness or disability. The range of products is very wide: it includes contact lenses and condoms; heart valves and hospital beds; resuscitators and radiotherapy machines; surgical instruments and syringes; wheelchairs and walking frames or other assistive technology products – many thousands of items used each and every day by healthcare providers and patients.
