The MHRA and the Commission on Human Medicines (CHM) run the UK’s spontaneous adverse drug reaction (ADR) reporting scheme – called the Yellow Card Scheme. This receives reports of suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) or side effects from healthcare professionals and patients for medicines and vaccines.

The Yellow Card Scheme is the main ADR reporting scheme in the UK and was introduced in 1964 after the thalidomide tragedy highlighted the urgent need for routine monitoring of medicines. It receives about 25,000 reports of possible side effects each year.
