Study finds some reductions in community antibiotic resistant infections and dispensing

  21 May 2020

The researchers investigated the relationship between primary care antibiotic dispensing and resistance in community-acquired urinary Escherichia coli infections from Bristol and the surrounding areas between 2013 and 2016.

This period was chosen because the NHS introduced an incentive scheme to reduce antibiotic dispensing from 2014 onwards. The work involved multilevel modelling analysis of data from 163 primary care practices (serving 1.5 million patients) and 152,704 urinary E. coli.
