UK AMR Diagnostic Collaborative Launch

July 5th 2018, London


 Hosted by NHS England on behalf of the UK AMR Diagnostic Collaborative


On behalf of the UK AMR Diagnostic Collaborative and as a key partner we would like to invite you to hold the date of July 5th 2018 for the formal launch of the Collaborative at the Wellcome Collection, London. This launch will set out the ambitions and plans for the UK ADC in 2018/19.

The UK ADC was formed to specifically consider and respond to the issues related to diagnostics as outlined in the O’Neill review. A global ambition with regard to diagnostics is quoted in the final report as:

High-income countries should make it mandatory that by 2020 the prescription of antibiotics will need to be informed by data and testing technology wherever it is available.”

The UK ADC membership comprises of colleagues across the health system and includes devolved nations. It’s focus is to consider how best the UK can respond to this ambition and define a plan that articulates key actions to take this work forward. 

The event will be held at the Wellcome Collection 5th July, Agenda below


The launch will be held at the Wellcome Collection, London

Address:   183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE
