Adverse Drug Reactions (The Yellow Card Scheme)
The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has begun a public health drive to encourage GPs, pharmacists and the public to report any suspicious side effects from medicines.
The Yellow Card Scheme, which was originally established in 1964, “acts as an early warning system for identifying previously unrecognised adverse drug reactions, but also provides valuable information on recognising side effects”.
