What is TARGET?

Developed by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the Antimicrobial Stewardship in Primary Care (ASPIC) Group, TARGET is the central resource to help primary care healthcare professionals and commissioning organisations improve antibiotic prescribing. Using the TARGET Antibiotics Toolkit resources will also enable primary care organisations to demonstrate compliance with the Health and Social Care Act 2008: Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance.
