Proposals to extend PGD use to biomedical scientists, clinical scientists & ODPs

NHS England, in collaboration with the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland governments, is consulting on a proposal to enable biomedical scientists, clinical scientists and operating department practitioners (ODPs) to use patient group directions (PGDs) to supply and administer medicines to their patients. Biomedical scientists ,clinical scientists, and ODPs are currently able to use patient specific directions to administer or supply a medicine. Extending this flexibility to include the use of PGDs would bring many benefits to both patients and the healthcare system.
