Antibiotics administered within four hours of arrival at hospital (Retired Apr 2016)

Antibiotics can reduce the symptoms of any infection that you may have and prevent infection from developing.


In 2016 the decision was taken by clinical leads in the North West to retire this measure. Patients eligible for this measure will not always have an infection therefore this will avoid any unnecessary prescribing of antibiotics.
