The MHRA is asking community pharmacy teams to share videos with patients to promote the Yellow Card Scheme

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is asking community pharmacy teams to share two videos it has produced, which highlight the Yellow Card Scheme, with patients.

The Yellow Card Scheme is an essential tool that the MHRA uses to monitor the safety of medicines, medical devices and herbal medicines. In a bid to increase reporting of side effects or issues with healthcare products, the MHRA has developed videos to help patients to produce a Yellow Card report; these are available on the MHRA’s YouTube channel as follows.

Community pharmacy teams should also share the videos with their online communities and other networks.
