Detail of feedback received
MHRA consulted interested organisations and published the consultation document on its website. Eleven replies were received. These included responses from medical, pharmaceutical and ambulance organisations. Ten of the responses expressed support for the proposals.
The remaining reply could not endorse the proposal unless UK Search and Rescue was required to register with the Care Quality Commission, although it recognised that paramedics in the service need to be able to administer drugs and patient group directions (PGDs) were an appropriate option.
