Treatment for common infections

Last updated: Thursday, June 28, 2018

In practice, you will encounter many different types of bacterial infection, but some are more common than others. The following pages focus on the specific infections that you are most likely to see on a general medical ward. Throughout we will stress the importance of checking your local guidelines, so make sure you know how to find them. 

This section is a work in progress and will be expanded - maybe you could let us know what common infections you'd like us to cover using the 'Contact us' link at the top of the page. You can either click on the individual infections, or on 'next page' to work through this section.
