Making medicines and medical devices safer


#MedSafetyWeek (7-13 November 2022)

#MedSafetyWeek takes place annually usually in November and each year there is a different focus or theme.

Show your support by sharing the MHRA messages and material below and from the MHRA social media channels. When posting please always use the #MedSafetyWeek hashtag to help extend and magnify the message.

Remember to discuss with colleagues and patients the importance of reporting suspected adverse drug reactions to the MHRA Yellow Card scheme.  traditional

In the resources section, you will find downloadable materials to help you raise awareness locally such as digital and traditional posters and e-mail banners. You can also see our case studies page for examples of regulatory action taken by the MHRA after receiving Yellow Card reports.

The MHRA's 2021 campaign focused on medicines and vaccines and the importance of reporting suspected side effects. For previous #MedSafetyWeek themes and materials see here.
