Yellow Card Scheme

What is the Yellow Card Scheme?

The Yellow Card Scheme is vital in helping the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) monitor the safety of the medicines and vaccines that are on the market.

Before a medicine is granted a licence so that it can be made available in the United Kingdom, it must pass strict tests and checks to ensure that it is acceptably safe and effective. All effective medicines, however, can cause side effects (also known as adverse drug reactions), which can range from being minor to being very serious. For a medicine to be granted a licence, the expected benefits of the medicine must outweigh the possible risks of the medicine causing adverse effects in patients. Sometimes, it is difficult to tell whether a possible side effect is due to a medicine, or something else. Even if it is only a suspicion that a medicine or combination of medicines has caused a side effect, we ask patients and health professionals to send us a Yellow Card.
