Controlled drugs room manufactured specifically for a leading midlands pharmacy chain.
Controlled drugs room for an independent pharmacy chain serving local communities with their nationwide branches, currently (at the time of writing) in the process of building a new headquarters in Birmingham.
Controlled drugs room from Pharmacy Medical
New Controlled drugs room for leading high street pharmacy chain.
After purchasing controlled drugs cabinets from us for may years, Jhoots chose Pharmacy Medical to manufacture and install a bespoke Controlled drugs room for their new headquarters. The new Controlled drugs room will enable Jhoots staff to securely store all their controlled drugs before distributing to their regional Pharmacies.
Our brief was to provide a Controlled drugs room which complies with BS2881:1989 and the misuse of drugs ( safe custody) regulations 1975 to allow the storage of bulk deliveries of Controlled drugs on pallets prior to being stored in Controlled drugs cabinets or being sent out to Pharmacies. The new Controlled drugs room will store all their controlled drugs before they are distributed to Jhoots shops in and around the area. The Controlled drugs room allows a pallet delivery of Controlled drugs to be deposited securely straight into the room using a pallet truck. The client also wanted Controlled drugs cabinets installed within the Controlled drugs room to enable them to further secure the controlled drugs into individual cabinets when the delivery had been checked.
The Controlled drugs room was positioned inside the confines of the building and was of a block work construction, clad internally with 2mm steel which was powder coated white to give a clean and durable maintenance free finish. We manufactured a purpose made steel door which was securely locked using two 6 Pin Euro-profile cylinder locks. The client also installed their own electronic access system to further increase security and traceability of entry to the Controlled drugs room.
Inside the Controlled drugs room we installed sixteen separate Controlled drugs cabinets each with adjustable shelves and two 6 Pin Euro-profile cylinder locks.
This design of Controlled drugs room allows a pallet of Controlled drugs to be stored in line with misuse of drugs ( safe custody) regulations 1975 before the pallet's contents have been stored away in the controlled drugs cabinets within the Controlled drugs room .
Jhoots managers were conscious that should a bulk delivery of Controlled drugs be made at the end of a working day with insufficient time to unload the pallet into CD cabinets then the contents were stored within regulations overnight prior to being stored in the CD Cabinets the next morning.
