Email sent on behalf of the Controlled Drug Accountable Officer – Chris Weiner:
Dear Colleagues at the LPC
An Online CD Reporting Tool is being rolled out by NHS England West Midlands Area Team. The tool was developed 4 years ago and has been steadily adopted by all Area Team across England.
The Online CD Reporting Tool will be used to report CD incidents / concerns, CD destruction requests and self-declarations by dentists, pharmacists and General Practitioners.
We will be encouraging contractors to use the tool when it goes live and appreciate your help to ensure the information is circulated to community pharmacy colleagues. Please could you put this information in your local newsletters and cascade across your email circulation lists in the West Midlands. Please find a letter attached from the CDAO – Chris Weiner and a Frequently Asked Questions supporting document.
The Online CD Reporting Tool will ensure we have a standardised approach across the area to reporting, recording and management of controlled drug concerns/incidents.
All reporters of controlled drug concerns / incidents will need to register on the website from the 1st of March 2018. Registration is required on an individual basis and it is recommended you familiarise yourself with the tutorial videos that will be available on the website form mid-March (www.cdreporting.co.uk). Please select the West Midlands region when you register.
There are no limits to the number of people from the same organisation that can register or access the website and the majority of reporters use their email address as their username and then select a password that is easy to remember.
From the 1st April 2018 the Controlled Drugs Accountable Officer will only accept incidents reported via the online CD reporting tool.
