DANCE MUSIC is the newest hit genre to be recognised by the UK Medical Association, with the announcement of a new category for “medical instrument” packaging.
The Medical Association said the new category would allow doctors to choose from a range of “dance music” genres, with its logo to be stamped in a variety of locations on the packaging of “medical instruments” and “medical devices”.
The announcement comes amid increasing interest in medical devices, particularly those which are “materially useful” for the treatment of conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
It is important that doctors make sure they choose products that are appropriate for their patients, as well as the appropriate health and safety requirements. “
The ‘medical instrument’ label gives patients more information and flexibility when it relates to the medical condition they are trying to treat, but also makes it easier for them to get the medical treatment they need.”
It is important that doctors make sure they choose products that are appropriate for their patients, as well as the appropriate health and safety requirements.
We have seen this with new ‘health alerts’ and other products, and we want to make sure the new label is compatible with both the medical conditions and their products.
“We want to ensure that our patients get the best possible product that is safe, effective and meets the needs of the health and medical professionals involved in the treatment and care of their patients.”
Dr Riddll said the classification was important for “dancers, DJs, pop artists and musicians”.
He said: “The medical instrument label is a recognition that people want to be able to choose their own products, as it provides patients with a choice of products to choose to make their own choices and the choice is up to them.”
Dr James Davies, medical director of the Royal College of GPs, added: “I hope the UK’s new classification will help to promote the growing popularity of the medical instrument category, which has become one of the fastest growing new genres in recent years.”
Dr Rennie Smith, chief executive of the UK Pharmacists Association, welcomed the announcement, saying: “The new category will enable patients and professionals to make more informed choices when choosing what to purchase.
It is a welcome change for patients, who now have more choice and a clearer choice when buying medical equipment.”
The category will help us ensure we continue to have the best products and products that deliver the best value for patients and our staff.
