Antibiotic Tips (Greater Manchester based)

Worldwide, sepsis kills more people than cancer (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51138859). In 2050 it is predicted antibiotic resistance will kill more than cancer (http://bsac.org.uk/securing-new-drugs-for-future-generations/). What a difficult balance!

Lisa and Sara opportunistically talk to Trafford GP Dr Anya Leaver about antibiotic prescribing in Greater Manchester. We discuss the issues, recent changes in local guidelines, helpful tips to improve prescribing practice, great resources and ideas for practice audits.
