National antimicrobial clinical audit cancelled
The requirement to complete the National Antimicrobial Stewardship Clinical Audit for 2019/2020 has been waivered with immediate effect by NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) following discussion with PSNC.
NHSE&I said they want to ensure that pharmacies are focused on the actions set out in national communications regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). The audit was due to be repeated in 2020/21, but it will now be undertaken for a first time in that year and further details on that will be provided later in 2020.
