The Department will continue to coordinate work across government and its agencies to implement nationally agreed policies on antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Arrangements for implementation of ‘Tackling antimicrobial resistance (2019-2024): The UK’s five-year national action plan’ are being finalised in discussion with key partners including Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the National Health Service, United Kingdom Research and Innovation and the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The NHS Long Term Plan, published in January 2019, made the commitment to implement the UK’s five-year national action plan on AMR. NHS England is currently working with NHS Improvement to develop detailed plans for implementation of the human health aspects of the national action plan.
