Respiratory Infections (RuBICoN) HIT

i Concluded

This means the HIT is no longer active

The Respiratory Infections Health Integration Team (HIT) was a team of doctors and scientists, who worked together to improve advice and support for parents and patients, and to reduce antibiotic use in the treatment of respiratory infections. The team was set up in December 2012 and closed in April 2017.

They worked to improve how coughs, colds and chest infections are managed to try to help people to look after themselves, help the NHS treat those who are more seriously ill every winter and improve the way money is spent. Some of the projects they developed included providing new clinics, and giving better information and skills to parents supported by good science to help them manage these infections with confidence.
