Scottish Reduction in Antimicrobial Prescribing (ScRAP)

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.
