Guidance on Patient Specific Directions

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has published guidance on patient specific directions (PSDs) in response to a number of enquiries about the use of PSDs in healthcare settings.

The guidance answers some frequently asked questions and includes a definition of a PSD. It also clarifies what information is needed on a PSD, how long they remain valid and the responsibilities and accountabilities of the prescriber who writes the PSD.

Action: Clinicians who make use of PSDs should be aware of this guidance and ensure that use of PSDs is in accordance with this guidance.
