PHARMExcel welcomes new MHRA Corporate Plan 2023-2026

PHARMExcel welcomes the new MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) Corporate Plan which sets out how it will keep patients safe while enabling access to innovative, safe and effective medical products over the coming three years.

The plan sets out the agency’s strategic priorities:

  • Maintain public trust through transparency and proactive communication
  • Enable healthcare access to safe and effective medical products
  • Deliver scientific and regulatory excellence through strategic partnerships
  • Become an agency where people flourish alongside a responsive customer service culture.

As a CRO with a focus in vaccines and immunotherapies and cell and gene therapies, PHARMExcel is pleased to note the mention of risk-proportionate regulations and priority regulatory pathways.

Yvanne Enever, CEO of PHARMExcel, praised the new plan saying “It’s imperative as new medical technologies are developed globally, we adapt our ways of working to remain relevant and ensure the UK continues to compete on the international stage, delivering high quality and scientifically valuable trials to improve human health.

I welcome seeing definitive changes to research management in the forthcoming months/years. I am also delighted the MHRA will continue to work closely with other regulators through collaborative groups such as the International Council for Harmonisation, the International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities and the International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF).”

In year two the MHRA anticipate focusing on two important drug safety issues over two years and developing a business model to roll out across all medicines and vaccines to better minimise risks for all patients by understanding the role of genetics in adverse reactions.
