The attached PGD template is based on the version being used to develop the national PGDs as part of the SPS National Medicines Governance Do Once programme.
Organisations may decide to use this template when developing their PGDs to encourage consistency when national PGD are adopted by organisations as they are released.
The template includes guidance on points to be considered locally in italics. Where the text is also in bold this is the text which is included in the national PGDs.
Please refer to the SPS website for further PGD resources to support development of PGDs including NICE Medicines Practice Guidance for Patient Group Directions and for further information on the SPS National Medicines Governance Do Once programme.
