NHS England have released the consultation on the proposal for the supply and administration of medicines using patient group directions (PGDs) by clinical scientists across the United Kingdom.  SCST Council members had significant input into the development of this project and we hope that the release of the consultation document leads to changes in legislation in this area as soon as possible.  The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the huge contribution of cardiac scientists and how they have worked in new and innovative ways.  We believe that the ability to extend medication administration under PGDs will demonstrate clear benefit to patient care.
