Medical Device / Equipment Alert
During 2009 all regions of the UK agreed to move onto a standard numbering system for medical device and estates Alerts. Medical Device Alerts have now prefixed by MDA and Estates and Facilities Alerts with EFA. If there is the need to publish safety information locally without national distribution these Northern Ireland Alerts have the prefixed with NIA’s
Older Medical Device/Equipment ALERT, Hazard Notices, Advice Notices and Safety Notices effective are retained on the website for reference.
Each ALERT is sent to HPSS organisations where action is required to be taken. Any member of the public requiring information on a particular notice is advised to contact their General Practitioner or NIAIC directly.
