Dr Joyce invited to Commons Select Committee

Dr Tom Joyce has been invited to give oral evidence to the UK Commons Science & Technology Select Committee on the regulation of medical implants.  Tom will be drawing on his expertise in the engineering analysis of failed metal-on-metal hip implants when he talks to the Committee on Wednesday 23 May 2012 at the Houses of Parliament in London.

Commons Select Committees are responsible for much of the day to day work of the UK government - they examine issues in detail from government policy to proposed new laws.  Tom's written submission to the committee can be found here.

Evidence is also being taken from Dr Carl Heneghan (GP and Reader in Evidence-Based Medicine, Director of the Centre of Evidence-Based Medicine, Oxford), Professor Stephen Westaby (Surgeon, John Radcliffe Hospital) and Dr Suzette Woodward (Director of Patient Safety, National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA)).
