Consultation on arrangements for controlled drugs

The Department of Health is consulting on proposed changes to the governance arrangements for controlled drugs in England and Scotland, including the role and functions of controlled drugs accountable officers (CDAOs).

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 has introduced significant structural changes for the NHS in England from next April. These have important ramifications for the overall governance of controlled drugs in particular, for the role and functions of primary care trust CDAOs. Consequently, the Controlled Drugs (Supervision of Management and Use) Regulations 2006 require revision.
