Patient Group Direction

 

A Patient Group Directions (PGDs) must only be used by registered health professionals who have been named and authorised by their organisation to practice under it. The most recent and in-date final signed version of the PGD should be used.

NHS England is responsible for producing and disseminating the NHS Immunisation programme and travel vaccine PGDs.

Practitioners and organisations must check that they are using the current version of the PGD. Amendments may become necessary prior to the published expiry date. Current versions of PHE PGD templates for local authorisation can be found from https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immunisation and they are also hosted here on the Pan Mersey Area Prescribing Committee website to support any clinician who needs to access the latest version.

Any concerns regarding the content of PGD for the NHS immunisation programme should be addressed to immunisation@phe.gov.uk
