Acute sore throat

Your morning Paramedic Clinic at the GP surgery has flown by and your last appointment is all that’s keeping you from a well-earned slice of cake. The patient complains of a very sore throat but is it a bacterial or a viral infection? They may expect a good ol’ course of antibiotics – how will you best assess and manage them?

This issue provides information on how to safely and effectively diagnose and manage patients who present with acute sore throat, exploring history taking, physical assessment and utilisation of clinical decision rules.
