Criminals don’t take any notice of the law – that’s the point of being a criminal! The problem, as I see it, is inadequate post marketing surveillance. I was not informed of my right, or duty, to report problems with my hip resurfacing to the MHRA so no wonder that many of these issues took so long to surface.
