Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance HDL (2002) 89

Scottish Executive Health Department HDL(2002)89 (Surveillance of antimicrobial resistance: a report of a subgroup of the advisory group on infection) requires the implementation of the recommendations made in a report by a subgroup of the Advisory Group on Infection.

The report points to the need for standardised data on levels of antimicrobial resistance to be available nationally. The Scottish Microbiology Forum has been formed to consider how this can be achieved, and along with HPS, will co-ordinate the development of national surveillance.
