UK CBRN

There are several PGDs available in relation to the medicines used for responding to chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incidents . PGDs allow the legal supply of medicines to groups of patients without the requirement for each individual patient to have a prescription written. Therefore, the use of these PGDs facilitates the supply of medicines following incidents which may involve large numbers of people. These PGD templates have been produced by Public Health England for national use. Each Board within NHS Scotland has their own locally authorised versions of these templates and copies can be accessed via the NHS Scotland Lead Pharmacist Emergency Planning Network.
