Update on the Chief Profession Officer's Medicines Mechanisms Programme

January 09, 2019 at 8:35 PM

NHS England Chief Profession Officers’ Medicines Mechanisms programme team continues to work with the healthcare science professional bodies on the proposal to enable biomedical scientists and clinical scientists to use patient group directions to supply and administer medicines to their patients. The perceived benefits of this change in clinical practice are wide-reaching for patients and the professions.

Current pressures on parliamentary time are leading to uncertainty about when necessary legislative steps could be taken in relation to the programme. The programme team are working closely with the Department of Health and Social Care and will keep professional bodies informed as to any changes to this position.
