Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review : Yasmin Qureshi MP Comments

Is putting three health scandals into one review a good thing ?

In the Commons, Yasmin Qureshi MP reacted to the UK Government announcing a Review into Primodos, Sodium Valproate, Vaginal Mesh.

Setting up another review is not enough, victims deserve better. Asked @Jeremy_Hunt to look at the new scientific evidence together with evidence of regulatory failings that show there was a cover-up. Its time that this was finally exposed and families given answers #Primodos
