What's the talk about?

In 2018, Jeremy Hunt MP announced a review into how the NHS responds to harms from medicines and medical devices. This followed patient-led campaigns on the use of the hormone pregnancy test Primodos, anti-epileptic drug sodium valproate and surgical mesh. Carl Heneghan has given evidence to the review and will discuss why we need such a review, what are the problems and some of the solutions.
