MicroGuide Antibiotic Guidelines App

The South Central Antimicrobial Network (SCAN) Guidelines for Antibiotic Prescribing in the Community have been used across many CCGs in the South Region, including Oxfordshire and East Berkshire and Berkshire West, for a number of years. These guidelines provide advice on the effective and safe treatment of infections commonly presenting in primary care and are based on NICE and Public Health England advice with input from local experts.

The guidelines are available on the digital platform MicroGuide – this can be accessed as an app on a phone or tablet device (downloadable free from the Apple Store and Google Play) or via a web viewer on a desktop computer or laptop. Many other CCGs use this platform so select ‘South Central Antimicrobial Network’ for the correct guidance.
