This piece of work has been undertaken at the request of the Commissioning Leadership Group, who agreed that there was a need to understand and outline the clinical governance requirements that need to be in place within the local authority, identify where there are gaps and make recommendations to address these gaps.

The main focus for this piece of work which is being led by Sarah McNulty from Knowsley is outlining the Clinical Governance issues relating to the development of Patient Group Direction (PGD). This includes a number of options through which these can be developed, whilst ensuring that the necessary legal framework and governance arrangements are in place and complied with.
