Abstract: The Antiplatelet Trialists’ Collaboration provided convincing evidence of benefits of aspirin prophylaxis in patients after myocardial infarction,1 but many such patients do not receive it.2 3 Since most patients are followed up in primary care, practices need to implement methods of improving aspirin prophylaxis in these patients. The aim of this multipractice audit led by a primary care audit group was to assess and improve levels of prescribing of prophylactic aspirin for patients after myocardial infarction in Leicestershire.
