The following topics were all reviewed:

The majority of reviewed topics have undergone reviews and minor restructures.

The most significant changes were to the Impetigo topic where the duration of topical treatment has been reduced to 5 days based on recommendations by Public Health England and the Pelvic inflammatory disease topic where the role of Mycoplasma genitalium and antibiotic treatment is now detailed.

Action: Clinicians who see patients with any of these conditions may find the new and updated information useful when reviewing current clinical practice.
