This PGD protocol example is shared by Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

In addition, a number of documents and tools have been developed to be used in conjunction with the Trust PGD Protocol. These support the monitoring of both governance arrangements and the use of PGDs at directorate level, within the relevant speciality and with the aim of ensuring patients receive safe and appropriate care and timely access to medicines, in line with legislation.
