POINT OF CARE TESTING – RTI
Four pharmacies in the LPC area are taking part in a pilot using C-reactive protein testing to identify respiratory track infections.
The aims of the pilot are to evaluate a CRP test in community pharmacy and to assess the acceptability of point of care CRP testing in community pharmacy. To demonstrate the reduction in GP appointments for non- LRTI and antibiotic prescribing.
The pharmacies are;
Meir Hay – Longton
Ratcliffes – Ashbourne road
Milton Stoke – Stoke
