Following the combination of the Public Health England (PHE) guidance with NICE guidance, the APC agreed to adopt the ‘NICE/PHE Summary of antimicrobial prescribing guidance-managing common infections’ without alteration - see link below to the "Antibiotic Guidelines - Public Health/NICE Summary tables" for the most up to date guidance.

This guidance can also be accessed via 'TARGET Toolkit' (web links below).
The "Antibiotic Signposting" document for the list of CCGs adopting the guidance together with local Microbiology and out of hours contact details has been updated (September 2019) to reflect the adoption of the NICE/PHE combined guidance (please see below).
