Can a PGD be used to supply and/or administer medicines to patients in their own homes or in more than one location?

· NHS PGD Website

Yes, the PGD need not to relate to specific premises.

If no specific location for use has been specified on the PGD the supply or administration could take place at a variety of locations including a patient’s home, a surgery or health centre, a pharmacy or an Urgent Care Centre.

However if a PGD does specify the location of use (i.e. ‘Administration of lidocaine 1% injection within the Minor Injuries Unit’) then this PGD can only be used within this setting.
