Led by Health Protection Scotland (HPS), and reporting to Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO), the Control of AMR in Scotland (CARS) group, with other partners, the Scottish Antimicrobial Prescribing Group (SAPG), and NHS Education Scotland (NES), was established in 2014 to deliver these action areas for Scotland.
