North West Controlled Drugs – Alert Template

North West Controlled Drugs – Alert Template

March 21, 2021

The North West Controlled Drugs Team have launched this new regional alert template  to use with immediate effect.  This alert form can be used to report lost Controlled Drug prescriptions and individuals of concern (drug seeking behaviour etc).

You should include as much information as you can when completing the alert template, this will ensure that the alert is not delayed pending further information and is cascaded in a timely manner.

The completed forms need to be returned to and will be cascaded to relevant organisations.

Please also be reminded that all incidents and concerns relating to Controlled Drugs MUST be reported on the CD Reporting Tool  Therefore if you are sending an alert for cascade then please ensure you have reported this.

If you have any queries relating to this email then please contact the team at
