Blank PGD template with guidance notes


To help support learning about PGDs and as an off line reference source, the CPPE have developed a PGD template with guidance notes to help with writing a PGD.

This document uses the NICE PGD template and adds guidance notes to help people and organisations develop good-quality PGDs.

These guidance notes are not exhaustive but provide sample text for people with little experience of writing PGDs.

This is a reference source only. Links from the NICE PGD template are included to signpost users to relevant information.


Links are added to other information such as NHS PGD website FAQs.

When developing a PGD, users should also refer to MPG2 which contains other important information not covered within this template with guidance notes and also to their local PGD Policy and related medicines policies.
