MHRA Neil McGuire

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has appointed Dr Neil McGuire clinical director of medical devices, effective from March 3, 2014.

Dr McGuire joins the MHRA from the Royal Air Force Medical Service and the Defence Medical Services, where he was a defence consultant adviser in anaesthesia, pain medicine and critical care and latterly the RAF Medical Service's senior consultant and a Queen's honorary surgeon.

As a consultant in anaesthesia and intensive medicine, McGuire has extensive clinical experience, both within the services and the NHS. He has taken a leading role in developing many aspects of clinical practice across the services, particularly patient safety in relation to medical devices.

McGuire's career has also seen him involved with a number of professional bodies, including the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland, the Royal College of Anaesthetists and the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine. 

“I am delighted that Neil is joining the MHRA. His clinical expertise and experience will be vital in our role of safeguarding public health and ensuring medical devices are fit for purpose,” said John Wilkinson, the MHRA's director of medical devices.
