E-learning developed in 2021 by SPS in partnership with UKHSA, HEE and eLfH to support professionals who use, develop, authorise, review or update PGDs.

This programme, launched in December 2021, has been developed by SPS in partnership with UKHSA, HEE and eLfH (electronic Library for Health) to support healthcare professionals who use,  develop, authorise, review or update PGDs to deliver services in line with legislation and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance.

The programme helps professionals, at whatever stage they might be involved in the process, to understand how to ensure that PGDs are developed, authorised and used safely and within the legislation.

All healthcare professionals and others involved with PGDs such as commissioners can access this PGD e-learning programme via eLfH.
