There have been three documented treatment failures in England reported to date and all were eventually cured successfully. Public Health England (PHE) undertakes comprehensive surveillance through the gonococcal resistance to antimicrobials surveillance programme to enable early detection and management of antibiotic resistance in gonorrhoea. It uses this intelligence to advise on national gonorrhoea treatment guidelines ensuring they remain effective. PHE also investigates outbreaks and individual cases of extensively drug resistant gonorrhoea and potential treatment failures to ensure effective management and control spread.
