-In 2015, a total of 60,577,367 controlled drugs items were prescribed in NHS primary care...the cost of this was £561,872,673.58. In addition, a further 1,118,884 items were prescribed in hospital using an FP10(HNC) or an FP10SS form to be dispensed in the community.... Controlled drug prescribing by nurses increased by 12%... Furthermore, prescribing by pharmacists increased by 112%. This reflects changes in practice, for example, the increasing numbers of independent prescribers working in primary care.... Going forward, we need to continue to monitor how the regulations are implemented to ensure that arrangements remain effective. We also need consistent reporting arrangements to establish a national picture of controlled drug incidents.” Care Quality Commission July 2016

This conference focuses on the safe use, prescribing and management of controlled drugs including monitoring adherence against the 2016 NICE guidance on the safe use and management of controlled drugs. NICE stated that the new guidance will help health and social care professionals negotiate complex legislation and regulations to ensure they are doing all they can to care for patients being treated with controlled drugs. There is also a focus on reporting and investigations of concerns and working in partnership with the police.
