Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review
Over many years, Sharon has met with victims, campaigners and charities who support and campaign for justice for victims of Primodos, Valproate and Vaginal Mesh.
More recently, as the Shadow Minister for Public Health, Sharon has spoken on all three of these issues in Parliament, to raise awareness of these scandals and call on the Government to look into why they happened to ensure that anything similar isn’t allowed to happen again and that victims have justice.
In February 2018, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care made a statement announcing the Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review, chaired by Baroness Cumberlege. Whilst the review falls short of what the Labour Party called for in the 2017 Manifesto, Sharon has welcomed the review as a step in the right direction and will continue to follow it closely.
