New Guidance on Controlled Drugs

"A guide to good practice in the management of controlled drugs in primary care - Scotland" is a guidance document from the Accountable Officer's Network, Scotland.  Controlled  drugs  (CDs)  are  an  integral  part  of  modern  clinical  care. 

There  have  been significant changes made to the governance and legislation surrounding the management and use of CDs following the Shipman Inquiry.  This document aims to take account of legislative changes and developments in professional practice.

The document can be found on the NES website here
