Patient Group Directions (PGDs) consist of a legal framework allowing some health care professionals to supply and administer medicines to groups of patients that fit the criteria laid out in the PGD. A health care professional could supply and/or administer a medicine directly to a patient without the need for a prescription or an instruction from a prescriber.
PGDs allow the supply and administration of specified medicines to patients who fall into a group defined in the PGD.
The PGDs listed have been authorised by NHS England North Yorkshire and Humber local area team.
