This pilot study will help ensure the efficiency and acceptability of the main observational study focussing on skin and ‚Äòsoft tissue‚Äô infections.

Skin and ‚Äòsoft tissue‚Äô infections are mainly managed in primary care (GP surgeries). However, most research in this area has been conducted in secondary care (hospitals). Little information is available on the type of skin and soft tissue infections seen in primary care, their presentation, management, and outcomes. The research team aims to describe these features, as well as explore which features predict poor outcomes (prolonged duration of illness or complications), and which patients are most likely to benefit from antibiotic treatment. This pilot study will help ensure the efficiency and acceptability of the main observational study. This year long project will cost ¬£9,459, which covers the cost of the consumables, travel and compensation for participants and an administrator.
