  1. A life science growth package. The update addresses the growth potential of the UK market by increasing investment. The update also confirms that the MHRA will launch an additional consultation into international recognition of medical devices by October. It is expected that the consultation will shed light on the potential approach for the domestic assurance route to obtain approval for the GB market. The MHRA will also be consulting on guidelines supporting their ambition to maintain patient
