The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust


Antimicrobial Stewardship

LTHT Medical Microbiologists provide advice for Leeds patients and those cared for by Bradford GPs. All microbiologists assist in the interpretation of laboratory results and give advice on specimen collection for infectious conditions and patient therapy. The latter might be based on culture results (definitive treatment) or on clinical suspicion (empirical therapy).

Guidelines for management of infections including advice on the use of antimicrobials and referrals to Microbiology can be found on Leeds Health Pathways
