Suspected defect online form

Patients or members of the public who have concerns about the quality of a medicine should in the first instance refer the matter to their pharmacist or doctor, who may then decide to contact the MHRA. During business hours this is the preferred option as an actual sample can be examined straightaway, whereas sending samples to the MHRA normally takes one to two days.

Should this not be possible, patients and members of the public may contact the DMRC directly.
