As well as covering such questions as who can administer these medicines and who is an appropriate practitioner, this guidance refers to administration of these medicines under a Patient Group Direction (PGD) and the requirements for a valid PGD in the private sector.

The guidance also covers information for nurse independent prescribers and provides the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s position on the supply and administration of Botox® and other Injectable Medicines in Cosmetic Procedures.
