Changes to your Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer

Following the integration of NHS England and NHS Improvement, the Central Midlands region has been reconfigured. Consequently, from 1st August 2019, the LIN currently comprising Milton Keynes, Nene and Corby is going to be split: Nene and Corby will remain with Bhavisha Pattani as CD Accountable Officer and will unite with the Leicestershire LIN whilst Milton Keynes will be aligned to the East of England NHS England and NHS Improvement area team where the responsible CD Accountable Officer will be Dr Sarah Rann.

Dr Rann can be contacted by email at and by phone on 0113 825 0770.

The timing of this re-organisation means that we would very much appreciate that you continue to submit any incidents which occur during Quarter 1 (April – June 2019) and Quarter 2 (July only) to the Central Midlands team but for Quarter 2 (August – September) these should go to the East of England team. We are hoping this transition will be seamless and that you will not have to amend any details on the online site at where the transfer will be managed by the administrators, but should you have any problems or queries, please contact a member of the Central Midlands team on 0113 8249614 or 0113 8248678.
