Welcome to bumps

Information leaflets - New/updated for March:
Use of essential oils

Thank you to all members of the public, patient support groups and health care professionals for your continued support and encouraging feedback.

Our aim is to write bumps information leaflets for as many medicines as possible. We are in the process of compiling a list of requests so please keep them coming

bumps leaflets are freely available and are based on the same scientific information we use to advise health care professionals. We analyse all the relevant scientific studies that are available, not just the most recent ones. 

Online reporting - Our new online reporting facility is now live! Find out more about how and why to create a my bumps record here.
