Brexit Could Weaken Drug Safety Systems In Both UK And EU, Health Alliance Warns

Executive Summary

Losing access to the EudraVigilance drug safety database after Brexit could lead to delays of up to two months in safety signal detection, and up to five months’ delay in managing new signals, says an alliance of industry, UK National Health Service bodies and medical charities. The alliance also warns that efforts to tackle infectious diseases could be impaired if the UK's role in EU health risk reporting systems is diminished.
