The PGD's for EHC services in Gateshead and South Tyneside services are expiring. Both Gateshead Council and South Tyneside Council have updated their PGD's and have distributed them slightly differently. Please read below the section related to your council area and ensure you download the relevant PGD's to continue to offer the service.
Gateshead council recently contacted all providers of the EHC service in Gateshead via Pharmoutcomes. The message included the PGD however you can also download it from the Gateshead EHC service page on the GST LPC website.
Please note that the new PGD includes the new requirements for pharmacists which will come into effect in March 2017 and includes the replacement of a DBS check with the confirmation that an annual GPHC fitness to practice declaration has been made as well as the use of a declaration of competence via CPPE.
