MHRA Assessment

Every year we submit a compliance declaration to the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) for our blood banks.

The MHRA may then choose to come in and inspect our blood banks for good laboratory management and safe clinical practice, and our systems for quality management and haemovigilance. The last such inspection took place on 1 December 2009 and we were deemed to be in compliance with the regulations.

This assessment is against the statutory instrument 2005 No. 50 and its Amendment (SI 2005/2898) about blood safety and quality.
