unstar this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) has prioritised collecting the necessary data across the National Health Service to enable estimation and monitoring of the proportion of cases, deaths and costs attributable to carbapenemase-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.</p><p>In May 2015 PHE implemented an enhanced surveillance system of all carbapenemase-producing Gram negative bacteria, which was modified in 2019 to maximise efficiency. The health burden of cases, estimated from these data, will be published in the <em>English Surveillance Programme for Antimicrobial Utilisation Report</em> in November 2019.</p><p>The few published reports of outbreaks have estimated costs of at least £1 million, and up to £5 million, all indicating multi-model control measures are required, as outlined in the PHE toolkit for prevention and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae which is currently being updated.</p><p>Using national surveillance and patient administration data to develop mathematical models, work is ongoing to estimate the reduction in levels of illness and death when specified detection and control measures are applied by 2020. Developed models will enable associated costs incurred to be estimated and the cost-effectiveness of control measures to be established by 2021.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) has predicted future spread and the health and cost impact to the National Health Service of the Enterobacteriaceae Escherichia coli and a national outbreak of a highly-resistant organism, reflecting carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae. The models used in this assessment are published in the paper <em>A Risk Assessment of Antibiotic Pan-Drug-Resistance in the UK: Bayesian Analysis of an Expert Elicitation Study</em>. A copy of the paper is attached.</p><p>Such predictions are highly uncertain. There remain unknowns regarding transmission, efficacy of interventions and the additional hospital stay for infected patients (constituting a large part of the cost to the NHS).</p><p>PHE has worked with NHS colleagues, estimating the cost of controlling a carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) outbreak in five London hospitals to be over £1 million. Monitoring costs alongside implementation of PHE’s upcoming update of the CPE toolkit for health and social care is an important component of enabling cost-effectiveness evaluation.</p><p>Staff interviewed about the challenges of implementing the existing CPE toolkit highlighted maintaining awareness and training as key challenges, alongside infection prevention resourcing. An analysis of the responses was published in the paper <em>An evaluation of a toolkit for the early detection, management, and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae: a survey of acute hospital trusts in England</em>. A copy is attached.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The 2018 English surveillance programme for antimicrobial utilisation and resistance report contains information on carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli (E. coli) causing bloodstream infections in England. In 2017 there were 18 cases. The number of people with other infections and carriage of E. coli resistant to carbapenems is harder to ascertain as surveillance is not as uniform.</p><p>Public Health England (PHE) publishes guidance on the prevention and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (including E. coli); guidance is available for both acute and non-acute settings, copies of the <em>Toolkit for managing carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in non-acute and community settings</em> and <em>Acute trust toolkit for the early detection, management and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae</em> are attached. PHE is supporting actions outlined in the United Kingdom’s Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance National Action Plan that aim to prevent and control the transmission of carbapenem-resistant bacteria, which includes reducing the number of specific drug-resistant infections in people by 10% by 2025; reducing UK antimicrobial use in humans by 15% by 2024; and adding carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative infections to the list of notifiable diseases in existing laboratory reporting systems.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>While we can count many successes from our 2013-18 Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Strategy, resistance has continued to increase. In the United Kingdom we have seen a 35% increase in resistant blood stream infections in humans from 2013-17.</p><p>The number of bloodstream infections (BSIs) is increasing each year. Although the proportion of antibiotic resistant BSIs remain stable year to year, the burden on resistance increases. This is mostly due to increasing prevalence of E.coli bloodstream infections.</p><p>Estimates of the multi-resistant cases can be made, however not all the bacteria are tested against the same antibiotics, so a definitive number of cases cannot be given. The Public Health England Fingertips tool also has an indicator showing the rolling quarterly average proportion of E. coli blood specimens non-susceptible to at least three of the key antimicrobials (gentamicin, ciprofloxacin, piperacillin/tazobactam, 3rd-generation cephalosporins or carbapenems). For England this is 5.5% with little fluctuation over time.</p><p>This is exactly why the UK’s five-year national action plan for AMR, published alongside the UK 20-year vision for AMR on 24 January 2019, includes a strengthened focus on infection prevention and control, renewing our commitment to halve levels of healthcare associated Gram-negative blood stream infections (mostly E.coli) by 2023-24. The plan also sets a world-first target to reduce the actual numbers of resistant infections, with the aim to reduce them by 10% by 2025.</p><p>We are working with the devolved health administrations to develop consistent methodologies for reporting the incidence and mortality of key antibiotic resistant infections and antimicrobial use to allow us to report progress on the ambitions of the AMR national action plan.</p><p>As reductions in inappropriate prescribing also reduces the risk of promoting the growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, interventions to reduce antibiotic prescribing or transmission of the bacteria are complementary.</p><p> </p>
