NICE Influenza guidance deactivated

The Department of Health have written to healthcare professionals to deactivate the NICE guidance for use of antivirals in the treatment and prophylaxis of influenza.

As reported earlier this year, the NICE Guidance was activated by the Department of Health in response to rising levels of influenza in the community.

The most recent data suggests that influenza rates have now fallen below the threshold and therefore the guidance has been deactivated. A communication has been sent to clinicians throughout the NHS.

Action: Clinicians should stop prescribing antivirals for the treatment and prevention of influenza.
