Alert – Fake Percocet tablets containing fentanyl in circulation

December 17, 2018

The Metropolitan Police have issued an alert regarding the seizure of ’significant’ quantities of fake Percocet tablets that contained fentanyl and no other psychoactive drug.

Given our proximity to London, CGL have provided a flyer detailing precautions that any drug users can take to reduce the risk of harm from fentanyl – if you could cascade as appropriate to anyone you encounter in your organisations who may be affected by this, they will be very grateful.

There are further details on the CGL website:

If you have any additional information that might help people who use drugs to stay safe, or you would like some advice, please contact your local service:
