PSDs for Travel Vaccine we have received some queries following the e mail sent to all from from Sue Mulvenna on what constitutes a PSD. A PSD may be verbal or written but must be made after considering that individual patient, and must constitute a clear instruction to the practice nurse or other competently trained health care professional to supply or administer the drug. PSDs can be an electronic instruction, in the form of a prescription provided that it can be linked uniquely to the patient and the prescriber and is under his/her sole control. The PSD could also be a signed list of patients such as in a flu or travel clinic. There is no requirement for the instruction to be defined as a PSD in the notes.Health professionals need to be mindful of the requirements to maintain accurate patient records and the need to ensure that communications between them are understood. Where a verbal PSD is used it would be good practice to record the form of the direction alongside the accurate clinical record of the action(s) subsequently carried out. Further guidance
