Strep A Guidance

Posted on December 7th, 2022

Group A Streptococcus (GAS), also known as strep A, are bacteria commonly found on the skin or in the throat.

When to contact your GP and go to A&E: https://www.nhsinform.scot/illnesses-and-conditions/infections-and-poisoning/streptococcus-a-strep-a

With the increase in cases of Group A Strep and the potential need for antibiotic prescribing, not all children will require liquid form and so please see below videos and advice on how to encourage and teach children to swallow tablets, reserving liquid use for babies and very small children.
