 Mike Maguire , a Community Pharmacist by profession, and a NESCHA Board member led this successful project to reduce antibiotic prescribing for patients with potential chest infections. NESCHA supported service design and facilitated patient feedback so were an integral part of the RAP Project

Pharmacy Magazine:”Of 123 patients seen in participating pharmacies, eight were referred back to the GP and of these just four turned out to need antibiotics.

“GPs found that quite staggering but also insightful – it helped them to reflect on how many of these patients really do antibiotics,” said Mr Maguire.
