Greater Manchester Drugs Early Warning System Launch Event
Wed 29 March 2017, 09:30 – 12:00 BST
Greater Manchester’s Mayor and Police & Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd and the Members of the Justice and Rehabilitation Executive Board are hosting an event to engage and inform partners of their potential involvement in a Greater Manchester Drugs Early Warning System.
The last decade has seen the unprecedented emergence of large numbers of New Psychoactive Substances (NPS) together with significant changes to the potency and/or adulteration of traditional drugs of misuse. There have also been numerous changes to existing drugs legislation and the introduction of new drug laws. The complexity of this situation has made it difficult for professionals to keep up to date with current knowledge.
Throughout England there are a number of local drug early warnings systems or ad-hoc ways of responding to local drug-related incidents. However, there is often no consistent approach used to process, grade and communicate alerts, building on national guidelines a Greater Manchester Drugs Early Warning System will be the first fully operational regional system in England.
At the event we will explain how the system will work and how your organisation can contribute to making it a success. There will also be the opportunity to register your interest in taking your organisation forward with the rest of Greater Manchester.
