Abstract

The upcoming article, "Evaluating Changes in Antibiotic Prescribing and AMS Practices at a UK NHS Trust: A Comparative Study of 2019 and the 2020 COVID-19 Period," addresses the critical issue of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. This research scrutinises the impact of the pandemic on antibiotic use and stewardship within a UK NHS Foundation Trust. It offers a comparative analysis of data from 2019 against 2020, with a focus on respiratory infections. Employing the WHO’s AWaRe classification, the study highlights shifts in antibiotic prescribing practices, providing valuable insights into AMS procedures during health emergencies and contributing to global efforts in combating AMR.
