Poor replacement for MicroGuide app

Looks like this has been rolled out before the comprehensive antibiotic guidelines from the now defunct (in terms of NHS Scotland) MicroGuide app have been ported over. This should have happened before the compulsory switch. Now a gaping hole in terms of accessing these guidelines. A big miss so far, I’m afraid.

Works brilliantly

Really easy way to access antimicrobial guidelines for my health board in the clinical workplace eg ward round/clinic. Updates when our guidelines update.
