The United Kingdom (UK) Focal Point on Drugs is based at Public Health England (PHE). It is the national partner of the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and provides comprehensive information to the centre on the drug situation in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Focal Point works closely with the Home Office, other government departments and the devolved administrations. In addition to this annual report, it collates an extensive range of data in the form of standard tables (STs) and responses to structured questionnaires, which are submitted regularly to the EMCDDA. It also contributes to other elements of the EMCDDA’s work such as the development and implementation of its five key epidemiological indicators, the Exchange on Drug Demand Reduction Action and the implementation of the Council Decision on New Psychoactive Substances (NPS).
