SAPG response to COVID-19

We are restarting our work programme. An initial meeting of our committee has been held and we have now resumed some of our project groups.

All our meetings will now be held virtually. We are reviewing our priorities, concluding a number of projects and considering potential new work required as a result of the pandemic.

Work is also ongoing to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on antimicrobial stewardship across hospital and community settings.
