Keep Antibiotics Working

We need your help to keep Antibiotics working.

Antibiotic resistance is a major threat to public health. It is estimated that 5,000 deaths are caused every year in England because antibiotics no longer work for some infections and this figure is expected to rise. Antibiotics help ward off infections during chemotherapy, caesarean sections and other surgery.

Public Health England have launched a new campaign called “keeping Antibiotics Working” to help encourage patients to only use antibiotics only when necessary at the recommendation of their GP or Nurse.

Visit the surgery or the antibiotic guardian website for more information on how you can help.
