Yellow Card support now available

A crib sheet designed to help pharmacy staff reporting possible adverse reactions to medicines to the MHRA is now available to download.

The guide can be used to help pharmacy staff to decide whether or not a suspected reaction needs to be reported via the MHRA’s Yellow Card scheme.

It also sets out the information that pharmacies should try to record in any reports they do submit.

Pharmacies are encouraged to consider whether there is a need for a Yellow Card report when patients report possible adverse reactions to medicines.

The reports can be completed online by either the pharmacy team or the patient themselves.

Click here to download the guide.
