Department of Health Letter: Gonorrhoea and antimicrobial resistance

18 Dec 2015
The Chief Medical Officer and Chief Pharmaceutical Officer for England have issued a letter on the risk of gonorrhoea becoming an untreatable disease due to the continuing emergence of antimicrobial resistance. Prescribers are asked to review prescribing practice and treatment protocols to ensure that they meet the national guidelines produced by the British Association for Sexual health and HIV. Online pharmacies can also refer to the General Pharmaceutical Council’s guidance on distance and internet services.
Further details are available in the letter.
