2017 General Election Result

09 June 2017

2017 General Election Result - how the BDIA is working to protect the interests of the dental industry.

With no single party securing a majority in yesterday’s General Election, the resulting hung parliament leaves the country with the prospect of minority or coalition government. This result, the specific details of which are yet to be revealed, will have significant impacts as we enter Brexit negotiations and the BDIA will be working closely with government bodies and other organisations to protect and promote the interests of the dental industry.

How will the BDIA work to protect the interests of the industry?
We will be speaking with the Chief Executive of the MHRA, Dr Ian Hudson, at a meeting of the influential Medical Devices Industry Liaison Group on Monday. Along with our partner medical device associations, we will be seeking clear guidance from the regulator on how the Medical Device Regulations, Brexit and other key issues for the industry will be affected by the election result and to press for a favourable outcome.

We will, of course, update you with developments as and when they happen.
