Antibiotic stewardship: volume of antibiotic prescribing (KTT9) by all CCGs

Why it matters: Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to public health, especially because antimicrobials underpin routine medical practice. It is important that we don't overuse antibiotics. This measure shows how many are being prescribed locally.

Description: Number of prescription items for all antibacterial drugs (BNF 5.1) per oral antibacterials (BNF 5.1 sub-set) item-based STAR-PU.

CCGs are ordered by mean percentile over the past six months. Each chart shows the results for the individual CCG, plus deciles across all CCGs in the NHS in England.
