What is X-PIL?

X-Pil ensures that patient information leaflets supplied with medicines are available in accessible formats such as braille, large print and audio.

Individuals wishing to listen to and/or request an available leaflet in an alternative format can contact the Medicines Information Line or visit their website:

You will need:

  • The name of the medicine
  • The medicine's product code number (normally a 9 figure number prefaced with the letters PL or EU, which can be found on the medicine box)
