Antibiotic stewardship: three-day courses for uncomplicated UTIs by all Sub-ICB Locations

Why it matters: NICE KTT on antimicrobial stewardship states that for most women (who are not pregnant) with no fever or flank pain, a three-day course of antibiotics for an uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) will treat it effectively. This also reduces the amount of unnecessary antibiotics being prescribed.

Description: Number of average daily quantities (ADQs) per item for trimethoprim 200mg tablets, nitrofurantoin 50mg tablets and capsules, nitrofurantoin 100mg m/r capsules and pivmecillinam 200mg tablets.
