Patient Group Directions (PGDs)

Immunisation & Vaccination PGDs Templates (Primary Care Use Only)
Access to the most recent Patient Group Directions are available on the Public Health England website.
Public Health England (PHE) immunisation patient group direction (PGD) templates have been developed and ratified in accordance with PHE PGD Policy. They have been signed by a doctor, nurse and pharmacist, from Public Health England's national immunisation 
team, who have been involved in the PGD development..
 
PHE immunisation PGD templates require further authorisation, in Section 2 of the PGD document before they can be used. This
should be by an appropriate authorising person, relating to the class of person by whom product is to be supplied, in accordance
with the Human Medicines Regulations 2012 (HMR). This may be a clinical governance or patient safety lead, who has designated 
responsibility for signing PGDs on behalf of the authorising body. The PGD is not legal or valid without signed authorisation in
accordance with HMR 2012 schedule 16 part 2. * see below
 
Adoption and governance of the use of PHE PGDs is the responsibility of the authorising organisation and provider.
 
Provider organisations, health professionals and immunisation practitioners should check they are working to the current PGD
versions and only work to documents authorised in accordance with HMR 2012 schedule 16 part 2.
these PGDs should be used with reference to the Green Book, and summary of product characteristics for the vaccine.
 
 

*For information - All legal signed copies of all PGDs are held centrally at CCG HQ offices.
