BASHH | Bacterial vaginosis

20th June 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline doesn’t really add anything new. It is very similar to the recent FSRH summary on Vaginal Discharge.

Oral Metronidazole is still the treatment of choice because it is cheap.

The main difference from the recent FSRH guidance is in BV in pregnancy. FSRH advised treating in pregnancy, even if BV is found as an incidental finding (ie the patient is asymptomatic). BASSH only advice treating if the lady is symptomatic, or if the patient is under 20/40 and has other risk factors for pre-term delivery.

"LocumDeck is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.

It can send an email confirming the sessions that are booked and creates and emails invoices direct to the practice for you. These contain links to your beautifully laid out ‘credentials’ page with all your relevant documents, and a model contract that is all ready for you to accept or edit.

It automatically produces and sends the locum form A, and will produce locum form B. It also acts as the calendar... And it all happens automatically. It is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly."
