Wording of UK FMD hub alert messages being updated

SecurMed, the organisation which runs the UK Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) hub, will be changing the wording of the eleven alert messages and one related system message produced by the hub when the data on the pack of a medicine gives cause for concern for its authenticity.

Both the “Description” and “Short Description” are being amended to make them more understandable to users of the system; this change follows discussions between SecurMed, the UK FMD Working Group for Community Pharmacy and some FMD system suppliers.

Please read the full PSNC update which includes a link to the revised messages.
