Welcome to the reporting site for the Yellow Card Scheme

Report a suspected problem or incident:

  • A medicine, vaccine, herbal or homeopathic remedy

    Some products may appear to be medical devices are actually medicines, for example pre-filled syringes, hormonal contraceptives, or hormonal contraceptive coil.

  • A medical device

    These are items used to treat or diagnose a condition or an illness, or help with a disability. For example medical devices include: equipment, dressings, implants, artificial limbs, blood glucose strips and meters, low dose heparin preparations for flushing catheters, some types of eye drops, insulin pens, thermometers, wheelchairs and some software/apps.

We cannot give you medical advice. If you are worried about your health:

  1. Talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse
  2. Call the NHS
    • NHS 111 in England and Scotland on 111 (textphone 18001 111)
    • NHS Direct Wales/Galw IECHYD Cymru on 0845 46 47 (textphone 0845 606 46 47)
    • NHS Northern Ireland

Always read the patient information leaflet, or instruction supplied with your medicine or medical device. It lists the known side effects or problems and advises you on what to do.
