The CD1 is also available within SystmOne on the ‘Lincolnshire Teaching Group’ This is a first for us so hope it all works. The aim is to make the new CD1 (2018) quicker and easier to complete. Please remember to print this on yellow paper so that the nurses can find it in the home. Thanks to Dr Kieran Sharrock for his help.
This information sheet is intended as a resource for staff in Lincolnshire looking after palliative care patients who have been prescribed alfentanil for pain relief. It is not a clinical guideline.
Here is the 2018 version of the Lincolnshire Anticipatory Prescribing Form also known as the CD1 or Gold Form. Please print this off on yellow paper. This makes it stand out from the mountain of paperwork from different teams supporting the patient at end of life. It greatly helps the nurses who are asked to dispense these drugs, to find the form. Many thanks to Dr Kat Collett at St Barnabas and her team from multiple providers around the county.
