NICE guideline on leg ulcer infection: antimicrobial prescribing

NICE has published the final guideline for the consultation on leg ulcer infection.

You can also find the supporting evidence, as well as all the stakeholder comments received during consultation and the responses to these comments. NICE has also produced equality impact assessment to support the guideline.

The recommendations from this guideline have been included in the NICE Pathway on leg ulcers, which brings everything together on leg ulcers in an interactive flowchart. There is brief information about the guideline for people using services, carers and the public at ‘Information for the public’.
