Hi all,

When the topic page Inactivation of Mechanical Complication of Device concepts was set up, unfortunately the attachment of the briefing note itself was missed. That has now been done. Given the briefing note was circulated through other groups and no comments on a missing briefing note from the CMAG topic page have been made; if you'd like the opportunity to comment please let me know via email info@snomed.org by Friday 19th January.

Kind regards,

Cathy
