BMA updates advice on PGDs and PSDs in general practice

Updated advice on the use of Patient Group Directions (PGDs) and Patient-Specific Directions (PSDs) in general practice has been issued by the General Practitioners’ Committee (GPC) of the BMA. The GPC has clarified the advice because there were differences between its position and those of the RCN and the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
