Survey of services John Perrott - APPGITA

Alternatively if you would like to email me your contact telephone number, a member of the

PALS team will be happy to phone you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes.

Coventry Teaching PCT also Warwickshire NO

The PCT does not provide any services for patients who are dependent upon prescribed

drugs. The GP, will of course, provide necessary treatment but I believe the CWPT provide

the substance misuse services.

Hope that’s ok

Cumbria Teaching PCT NO – I have a letter from my previous surgery (Head Doctor – Cumbria) stating that

there are no such services in Cumbria.

NHS Cumbria does not deliver this service but if you would like to contact Cumbria

Partnership Foundation Trust on 01228 602020 they will be able to help

Thank you

Derby City PCT NO – These all deal with illicit use. I also contacted Phoenix Futures in Trafford and they

deal with illicit use only.

I am unsure if you live in the Derby City or Derbyshire County geographical area, and the

response may differ slightly between the two areas. I have contacted the Derby City Lead

Commissioner Mr. James Sutherland, /Substance Misuse - who has kindly provided the

information below:

‘Individuals with addictions to prescribed medications (in the Derby City area) are supported

by City services i.e. Phoenix Futures, who are happy to support the patients registered /

prescribing G.P. in the development of management and support plans - to assist in recovery

from prescribed medications.

The City’s Drug treatment services are primarily concerned with providing substitute

medication for illicit drug use. The rationale for this in relation to prescribed medications is

there may be ongoing / underlying clinical care and medical needs which may preclude

treatment to be undertaken directly by drug treatment agencies, and as such a supportive

partnership approach is favoured within the City.

I hope this information is helpful to you, however if you are a Derbyshire patient – I would be

more than happy to approach our Senior Commissioning Manager Mr. M. Burrows, -

Derbyshire Drug and Alcohol Team (DAAT) - in order to request additional feedback, linked

to the same enquiry for Derbyshire response
