North Yorkshire and York Drug Alert Escalation Process

The Drug Alert Protocol is implemented to reduce harm or death related to drugs. The protocol enables us to assess and communicate known and/or potential risks from:

  • purity/contamination of illicit drug supplies in circulation
  • new psychoactive substances, also known as NPS or legal highs
  • diverted prescribed medications
  • drugs recently seized by North Yorkshire Police
  • health protection alerts related to substance use

Please complete the Drug Alert submission form below to let our panel know about drug harms that meet the above criteria. The panel will assess your submission and decide whether to take action to reduce harms.

Professionals should also report intelligence to the Police via the Community partnership intelligence form.
