Unscheduled Care PGD v24 now available

Friday, May 11, 2018

We are happy to announce that the new version of Scotland’s national Unscheduled Care PGD is now available to read and sign off . The “What’s New?” section is an essential read as always – many will be glad to hear that some methotrexate injections for self-administration are now included in the PGD!

Version 24 builds upon the incredibly helpful changes brought about in version 23, which are again summarised in the “What’s new?” section as people become more comfortable with there being fewer and fewer situations where supply is not permitted. The removal of these barriers to supply is welcome, as it allows Pharmacists to really cut straight through to the core issue when patients present having run out of medication – what are the consequences of not making a supply?
