Patient Reporting of ADRs

The general public can now report Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) to the MHRA. In a press release the MHRA announced that, following a successful pilot of patient reporting since January, patient reporting of ADRs would be made available nationally.

The general public can now report suspected side effects online at www.yellowcard.gov.uk or by Freephone 0808 100 3352.

More details are available online for patients and for healthcare professionals.

Action: Prescribers should be aware that patients can now self report but should continue to report suspected reactions as before. Systems are in place to identify duplicate reports and patient reporting will therefore complement healthcare professional reporting, not replace it.
