Thank you for getting back to me with regards to my Freedom of Information request, although you are unable to provide the information in the original request would it be possible to answer the below reworded question?

Within your health trust how many patients are currently [within the past 12 months] being treated with the following treatments, regardless of reason.



Ceftazidime/avibactam (Zavicefta)

Ceftolozane/tazobactam (Zerbaxa)

Carbapenems (such as: Meropenem, Imipenem/cilastatin, Ertapenem)

Aminoglycosides (such as: Gentamicin, Amikacin, Tobramycin)

Cephalosporins (such as: Cefotaxime, Ceftazidime, Ceftriaxone)

Quinolones (such as: Ciprofloxacin, Levofloxacin, Ofloxacin)

Polymixins (such as: Colistin)



As mentioned in my previous response, many of these are held as stock across the organisation so I am unable to provide patient numbers.
