Yellow Card Scheme reaches 50

In response to the thalidomide disaster, the Yellow Card Scheme (YCS) was introduced in 1964 to help the government monitor the safety of medicines and all medical devices in the UK. It allows health professionals and, more recently, patients and carers, to report side-effects to medicines (also known as adverse drug reactions, ADRs), medical device adverse incidents, defective medicines (those that are not of an acceptable quality) and counterfeit or fake medicines or medical devices.
