Controlled Drugs Guidance Document from Omnicell

A national call for automation and digitalisation of CDs

Omnicell are proud to sponsor this new guidance document, authored by retired Pharmacy Director Liz Kay and Ronald Pete, and reviewed/approved on a national scale by regional accountable controlled drugs officers.  


Some key report recommendations include: 

  • That the paper-based CD Record book should be replaced with electronic registers. 

  • That the ordering, storing, and supplying of CDs in hospitals should be through automated dispensing systems. 

  • That the need for a prescriber’s wet signature on electronic patient discharge and outpatient prescriptions should be reviewed  .
