Patient Group Directions for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) incidents

A specific set of PGDs have been developed by Public Health England (PHE) in partnership with NHS England, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and other specialist advice to enable the NHS in England to respond to a CBRN event.

The PGDs are provided to ensure a national capability to respond appropriately as required and will be updated in line with any changes to legislation or clinical evidence on efficacy of use and dosage requirements.

The PGDs can be accessed directly via the link below.
