Chance to self report medication side effects

If you experience side effects of any medication the first point of call should be your doctor, nurse or pharmacist who can discuss with you the best course of action which needs to be taken.

In addition a new scheme had been launched to enable people themselves to report suspected side effects of medication via the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) who have now launched a new UK-wide pilot called the Yellow Card Scheme.

This scheme enables people themselves to directly report their experiences of suspected side effects from medicines. The improved system will see patient Yellow Card reporting forms being made available in pharmacies, GP surgeries and other NHS outlets across the UK from next week.
