Prescribing was a clinical priority for the RCGP in 2008-2010, it was and continues to be a rapidly evolving field of which prescribers must keep abreast. The priority produced guidance for GPs.
The Antimicrobial Stewardship programme was launched as a clinical priority in April 2012. This will develop a range of tools, guidelines and educational material to support general practice. It will also work closely with the HPA in the development of the ASPIC toolkit for audit and information resources to be hosted in our website. Please find below a range of prescribing resources.
