Anticipatory Prescribing Form; CD1 Form; Gold Form. Word version
14th May 2018

Here is the 2018 version of the Lincolnshire Anticipatory Prescribing Form also known as the CD1 or Gold Form. Please print this off on yellow paper. This makes it stand out from the mountain of paperwork from different teams supporting the patient at end of life. It greatly helps the nurses who are asked to dispense these drugs, to find the form. Many thanks to Dr Kat Collett at St Barnabas and her team from multiple providers around the county.
