Strep A

Strep A

Group A ß-haemolytic streptococcus (also known as Streptococcus pyogenes) is a gram positive bacterium that causes a variety of pathological conditions and complications such as throat and skin infections, acute glomerulonephritis, sepsis and rheumatic heart disease.

Pharyngitis is commonly caused by viral infections and, more rarely, by bacterial infections, for which antibiotic therapy is required.

Strep A is a common bacteria (germ). It usually causes mild illness such as sore throats and skin infections. In rare cases, these bacteria can cause a severe and life-threatening illness called invasive group A streptococcal disease (iGAS). Strep A is spread by close contact and can be passed on through coughs and sneezes, or from a wound.                         

A strep A test is often used to find out if a sore throat and other symptoms are being caused by the bacterium or more commonly by a viral infection. Strep throat needs to be treated with antibiotics to prevent complications.

Between September 2022 and June 2023, there were 3,729 cases of iGAS recorded in England. A large increase of scarlet fever was recorded with 58,972 cases reported in England for the same period.

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infection is one of the most frequent pathologies affecting this area. The symptoms can be very different, such as: burning, constant urge to urinate and, in severe cases, lower back pain, fever and flu.

UTI is a priority focus within the NHS antimicrobial resistance (AMR) Program due to the high burden of antibiotic resistance infection associated with E. coli infections.

The burden of UTIs is high in both primary care and acute care. Improving the management of UTIs will reduce the risk of deterioration and acquisition of resistant infections, and NHS England improvement and assurance schemes continue to be used to improve the UTI pathway.
