Paul Flynn: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many deaths occurred in England as a result of adverse reactions to medicinal drugs in each of the past seven years; and what proportion of these deaths were reported by the Yellow Card scheme. 
Andy Burnham: Reports of suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are collected by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and Commission for Human Medicines (CHM) through the spontaneous reporting scheme, the Yellow Card scheme. Approximately 19,000 reports of suspected ADRs are sent to the MHRA/CHM through this scheme each year. It is not possible to estimate from the Yellow Card scheme the number of people who suffer adverse drug reactions with a fatal outcome since the scheme is associated with an unknown level of under-reporting.
Table 1 shows the total number of suspected adverse drug reaction (ADR) reports received via the Yellow Card scheme in the United Kingdom in each of the past seven years, and the number associated with a fatal outcome.
