Gabapentin and pregabalin to be reclassified as controlled drugs

Joint statement agreed by NHS England and CSP.  In order to provide evidence to extend the list of controlled drugs physiotherapists can prescribe we need to gather data.  Please can all IPs collect information for the next 2/12 on when they would have prescribed gabapentin/pregabalin/codeine/tramadol and what they did instead ie tricyclic, refer to IP etc.  If members could send this information at the end of the 2/12 to  The data collected by APPN will be shared with the CSP to try to make changes in legislation.

Many thanks
