Scottish Reduction in Antimicrobial Prescribing (ScRAP)

Add to favourites

The Scottish Reduction in Antimicrobial Prescribing (ScRAP) programme is an educational toolkit to help support a reduction in unnecessary antibiotic prescribing in primary care. Although aimed at GP practices it may be of interest to others involved in the assessment and management of infection in primary care, for example district nurses and care home staff.

ScRAP is a collaborative development between the Scottish Antimicrobial Prescribing Group (SAPG) and NES and development has been undertaken by a multidisciplinary reference group with clinical and educational representation.


Support Pack

The support pack provides information on the sessions available, the resources required to deliver each of the sessions, tips on how to support facilitation of the practical sessions in practice and information on CPD certification and evaluation. Download the support pack.




ScRAP includes educational materials to support delivery of facilitated learning sessions. The sessions are divided across three key topics:

1. Antimicrobial Resistance and Antimicrobial Stewardship
2. Targeting prescribing for respiratory tract infections
3. Managing urinary tract infections (four parts)

Good practice examples, audit toolkits, and patient information resources are also signposted and can be accessed below.
