Antibiotic stewardship: co-amoxiclav, cephalosporins & quinolones (KTT9) prescribing volume by all CCGs

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 volume of these prescribed, versus the list size adjusted for need.
