Dear MHRA... Now We Have Your Attention...

... what do you intend to do about this whole Seroxat debacle?

1. Are you going to admit to the British public that you were wrong?

2. Are you going to take responsibilty and admit that there have been failings by the MHRA on a calamitous scale?

3. Are you going to publically apologise for these failings?

4. Are you going to remove your Chairman, Alisdair Breckenridge, from his seat for publically stating in the New Statesman in 2005... and I quote: “If you go back - and I read this out to the Health Select Committee - to the data sheet on Seroxat when it was licensed in 1991, we spelt out word for word the problems of withdrawal from Seroxat, in words that we could not improve now. This idea that the regulators have been hiding the data is just not true. The so-called scandal of Seroxat is something I want to nail every time I speak in front of compatriots because it is absolute rubbish”.

5. Is the CEO, Kent Woods, of the MHRA now going to do the honourable thing and resign from his position?

Face it, you have not changed at all. You may have changed your name from the Medicines Control Agency (MCA) to Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) but lessons HAVE NOT been learned have they?

Nearly a third of the 181 experts who sat on the Medicines Control Agency (MCA) committees were linked to GlaxoSmithKline, Aventis Pasteur or Merck, Sharpe and Dohme.

Need I remind you what the MMR jab did to children?

You failed, and to coin the phrase of Charles Medawar of Social Audit, you failed miserably.

You have done it once again.

You HAVE NOT listened to your patients.

Janice Simmons runs the Seroxat & SSri User Group. Since its launch she has recieved over 15,000 emails - only 4 of which defended Seroxat!

And you say the benefits outweigh the risks?

It's high time you took a good look at yourselves. Look in the mirror. It's not a pretty sight is it? Failure never is.

The MCA is no more. We now have the MHRA. It's pretty much like Builders From Hell (ITV). A plumber, working for Smith & Co of Timbuktoo, does an unsatisfactory job - he is rumbled by hidden cameras. Smith & Co of Timbuktoo close down. Some months later they reopen, changing their name - they still trade, still carry out unsatisfactory work. That pretty much sums up the MHRA.

Valuable lessons have not be learned. The Myodil scandal, the MMR/Autism scandal and now the Seroxat scandal.

Heads should roll for this. Starting at the top, the CEO of the MHRA, Kent Woods. Others should follow - Breckenridge & Hudson et al.

The truth will out. It may take a long time but it will always out.
