Antibiotic stewardship: co-amoxiclav, cephalosporins & quinolones (KTT9) by all Sub-ICB Locations

Why it matters: Co-amoxiclav, cephalosporins and quinolones are broad spectrum antibiotics that can be used when others have failed. It is important that they are used sparingly, to avoid drug-resistant bacteria developing. This measure looks at the quantity of these prescribed, versus the broad class of similar antibiotics.

Description: Number of prescription items for co-amoxiclav, cephalosporins and quinolones as a percentage of total prescription items for cephalosporins, macrolides, metronidazole tinidazole & ornidazole, penicillins, quinolones, sulphonamides & trimethoprim, tetracyclines and drugs for urinary-tract infections.
