Shared learning – Improving management of PGDs during organisation change

· NICE Medicines Practice Guideline

NICE have published a shared learning example from South Devon and Torbay CCG and NEW Devon CCG with reference to NICE MPG2 PGD 2013.

The formation of PCT clusters in 2011, and subsequent CCGs in 2013 covering the whole of Devon, gave opportunity for the medicines optimisation teams to collaborate, produce, review and authorise PGDs for primary care covering a population of approximately 1.1million across an area of 2,500 square miles in Devon.

South Devon and Torbay CCG and NEW Devon CCGs state that “the use of the NICE PGD Good Practice Guideline and the Good Practice Guidance PGD Baseline Assessment Tool, has allowed us to benchmark the work that we do”.
