Details

These documents aim to provide a simple, effective, economical and empirical approach for testing and treatment of Helicobacter pylori and to minimise the emergence of antibiotic resistance in the community.

The quick reference is provided in Word so that clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) can make minor changes to suit local service delivery and sampling protocols. We discourage major changes to this guidance.
