BIVDA-led coalition calls for testing to tackle AMR

By February 28, 2024No Comments

The BIVDA-led consensus statement calling for testing to tackle AMR was released on Monday. After many months of organisation, including incorporating feedback following our Parliamentary roundtable, we are delighted by the final product.

BIVDA remain committed to leading the agenda on utilising diagnostics in the battle against AMR and will make sure to follow up on the outcomes that arise from this statement to positively impact antimicrobial stewardship in the NHS.

We would like to thank all the signatories who gave further weight to this important publication: Antibiotic Research UK, Asthma + Lung UK, Community Pharmacy England, IBMS, the Royal College of Pathologists, Abbott, eclateral, HORIBA and LumiraDx.

Members should have received a copy of the consensus statement on Monday, however, it can also be accessed here.
