Controlled Drugs

 

Controlled Drug Accountable Officer – West Yorkshire

The CD Accountable Officer for Yorkshire and Humber region is Gazala Khan.



CD Destruction Process During COVID-19 Pandemic

The NHS England Yorkshire and Humber Region Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer (CDAO) is adopting a new approach to the management of CD destructions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The new process will allow the authorisation of a registered colleague within the pharmacy team to act as an authorised witness during the pandemic.  This will allow the CDs to be denatured at a convenient time, promptly free up capacity in the CD cabinet(s) and without the additional burden of waiting for a third party authorised person to attend.
 
Authorisation must be granted by the CDAO BEFORE any CDs are destroyed.
 
The forms should be completed, a list of drugs to be destroyed added to the CD Portal and application submitted to the CDAO by email. The CDAO will then process the application and will, in many circumstances, designate the authorised person for the purposes of witnessing the destruction of controlled drugs. The authorisation will be for a very short time and limited to the premises to which the application relates for the list of drugs submitted on the CD Portal.
 
Pharmacy contractors will need to:
 
 
The CDAO has requested that where possible, the applicants use the Word document and complete the form electronically, rather than submitting a handwritten form.
