For the first time NICE is giving specific advice for doctors and nurses about when and how to prescribe antibiotics for conditions such as sore throats and colds. Working with PHE, NICE has published the first of a series of antimicrobial prescribing guidance resources starting with acute sinusitis. Future guidance will include otitis media, urinary tract infections, and sore throats. Each guidance topic will feature a visual summary of the recommendations, a guideline and an evidence review. You can follow their publication on the NICE website here.
