  • These guidelines have been developed by a Working Party convened on behalf of the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. Their aim is to provide general practitioners and other community- and hospital-based healthcare professionals with pragmatic advice about when to suspect MRSA infection in the community, when and what cultures should be performed and what should be the management options, including the need for hospitalization.
