Patient Group Directions (PGDs) Updated April 2018
The GPC guidance Patient Group Directions and Patient Specific Directions in General Practice has been redrafted to clarify the position of PSDs, confirming that they do not necessarily have to be in written form, but can also be a verbal instruction. The new guidance is available on the BMA website via the following link: http://www.bma.org.uk/support-at-work/gp-practices/service-provision/prescribing/patient-group-directions
PGD Update April 2018
HS England South East Imms & Screening Team are now sending PGDs directly to all Kent & Surrey & Sussex practices, and they are therefore no longer available to download from the LearningPool website.
Please direct any queries regarding PGDs to Paula McLachlan (email@example.com) who is leading on this for Kent & Medway, or Bonnie Wyatt, Lead for Quality (firstname.lastname@example.org).
