Hospital prescribing

How we support hospital clinicians to improve management of infections and optimise antibiotic use.


Antimicrobial Companion app

Gives practitioners quick and easy access to clinical guidance and supports decision making on antibiotic prescribing, including: 

•    Dosage calculators for key antibiotic medicines (registered as medical devices with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) as they provide a specific dose for individual patients).
•    Antibiotic prescribing guidance for primary care and hospitals which can be customised by each health board.
•    A decision aid to support management of urinary tract infections in older people.
•    An audit tool to support boards in gathering data for local and Scottish Government targets.
