The most significant changes in relation to the prescribing of controlled drugs can be found in the document below, as can a list of the controlled drugs in Schedule 4 Part 1.

In order to minimise the impact of these changes to patients and practitioners, prescriptions issued before the coming into force of these new regulations will continue to be valid. Prescriptions issued on or after 4 May 2017 must comply with the new prescription requirements.
