Coronavirus guidance

Guidance to support primary care prescribers and pharmacists is available from the MLCSU Coronavirus guidance resource page. Links are provided to national resources and regional documents produced by MLCSU, RDTC, and SPS for use by Pan Mersey APC, LSCMMG, and GMMMG.

The list of resources will be updated as new material becomes available so please check back regularly for updates.

The Pan Mersey APC supports the use of COVID-specific guidance issued by NICE, and NHS England and NHS Improvement. During the COVID pandemic this will supersede any APC advice.


Primary Care
Please refer to the Antimicrobial Guide (web-based).
PDF documents are available from the APC website.

Secondary Care
