Reporting a safety incident

Reporting a safety incident

Safety problems in medicines, medical devices and blood should be reported to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) via their Yellowcard reporting system.

You also report untoward incidents specifically relating to anaesthetic practice through the NHS eforms system. The report is reviewed by SALG and NHS Improvement.

The Royal Collage of Anaesthetists has produced instructions on using the form.

You can also find out more about reporting an incident on the NHS Improvements website.
