Are UKHSA Patient Group Direction (PGD) templates suitable for use as a resource in Wales?

Yes, health boards are able to use UKHSA’s PGD templates as a reference resource when developing their own PGDs. The UKHSA clinical signatures do not apply in Wales.

Governance and sign off for any PGD is the responsibility of the authorising organisation in Wales.

Where policy differs from England an advisory document for Wales will be provided by Public Health Wales.
