This controlled drugs cabinet is a very popular small cabinet. Its small size and competitive price offer a reasonable amount of storage in a small package. Now sold with an internal removable shelf, the cabinet is more usable than ever. This cabinet is very popular with care homes and often optioned inside one of our leading medicine cabinets.

At Pharmacy Medical we manufacture this left hand hinged CDC001/LH Controlled Drugs cabinet in our own factory here in the UK. The cabinet conforms to BS2881: 1989 (Security Level One). This is the specification for Cupboards for the Storage of Medicines in Health Care Premises. Furthermore, meets or surpasses the requirements of the “Misuse of Drugs (Safe Custody) Regulations 1973”. This is the requirement in the UK for the storage of controlled drugs.
We have designed this cabinet specifically to store Controlled Drugs. The cabinet is constructed from at least 1.5mm thick steel. This provides added security compared to our competitors.
All Controlled Drugs Cabinet prices include the necessary fixings and delivery to mainland UK.
The design of our controlled drugs cabinets also sets us apart from our competitors. We use piano hinges to hold the doors in place. As a result, we increase the access size into the cabinet. Most of all this enables you to make better use of the internal space. The piano hinge is also stronger than other hinging methods, adding further to the security level offered by our cabinets.

Our new design builds* on our template of a quality product. The new and improved design has allowed for us to reduce the returns around the front of the cabinet further improving the opening aperture allowing for better than ever access into the cabinet itself.

Furthermore, we have for the first time ever, installed height adjustable door shelves on selected models, again improving the usability of our cabinets.

Fully compliant with the Misuse of Drugs (safe custody) act 1973 and BS2881:1989 Level 1.
