Q - I work in general practice and run a clinic for patients with diabetes. The doctors, with whom I work, have compiled a list of medicines that I am able to administer to these patients. I am unsure as to whether I should do this.
A - Practice protocol on its own will not cover a nurse to supply and/or administer medicines. A Patient Specific Direction (PSD) or a Patient Group Direction (PGD) must be in place.
