The Yellow Card scheme collects and monitors information on suspected safety concerns or incidents involving: medicines, medical devices, and e-cigarettes.
The scheme relies on voluntary reporting of suspected safety concerns or incidents by healthcare professionals and members of the public (patients, users, or carers).
The purpose of the scheme is to provide an early warning that the safety of a product may require further investigation.
Further information about the Yellow Card scheme, including its contribution to identifying safety issues can be found on the Yellow Card website.
