“A Patient Group Direction is a written direction that allows the supply and/or administration of a specified medicine or medicines, by named authorised health professionals, to a well-defined group of patients requiring treatment of a specific condition.” Royal Pharmaceutical Society 2018

“Patient group directions (PGDs) are written instructions to help you supply or administer medicines to patients, usually in planned circumstances. They take a significant amount of time and resource to develop and implement. You can only supply and or administer medicines under PGDs if there is an advantage for the patient without compromising their safety. PGDs should be put together by a multi-disciplinary group including a doctor, a pharmacist and a representative of any professional group expected to supply the medicines under the PGD. It’s good practice to involve local drug and therapeutics committees, area prescribing committees and similar advisory bodies. The expiry date for a PGD needs to be decided on a case-by-case basis in the interest of patient safety. The expiry date should not be more than 3 years from the date the PGD was authorised.” Department of Health December 2017

This conference focuses on developing, using, authorising and reviewing Patient Group Directions (PGDs) to ensure safe and effective practice.
