The National Prescribing Centre (NPC) has updated the Guide to Good Practice in the Management of Controlled Drugs in Primary Care.
The Guide incorporates changes that have been announced since the first edition of the guide was published in December 2005. It covers many aspects of the management of controlled drugs including:
- Purchase and Supply
The NPC also recommend that, since the legal and regulatory framework governing CDs is continuing to change significantly, the following sites may be useful in obtaining the most up-to-date information:
- Department of Health - Controlled Drugs
- Home Office
- Home Office - Drugs Laws and Licensing
- Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain
Action: All healthcare professionals who prescribe, supply or administer controlled drugs should obtain a copy of this guide and familiarise themselves with the changes in legislation and good practice.
