Sore Throat Pathway - Sore Throat

All sore throats including those with a 'self-reported' sore throat at any time in the preceding 72 hours should be assessed and follow the pathway.

Those with a normal throat on examination still require assessment.

The aim of the pathway is to:

  • Ensure that all GAS pharyngitis in high rheumatic fever risk patients are treated.
  • Ensure unnecessary antibiotic use is reduced.
