Giving GPs feedback on their prescribing habits can reduce excessive use of antibiotics
The results show that giving feedback to GPs with the highest antibiotic prescribing rates cut prescribing by an average of 3.3% over 6 months. The letter led to over 73000 fewer prescriptions and direct savings of over £92000 in prescription costs. The trial was a collaboration between England's Chief Medical Officer, Public Health England, the Department of Health, and the Behavioural Insights Team.
