Antimicrobial resistance and prescribing

 

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing us today. Without effective antibiotics many routine treatments and common bacterial infections will become increasingly dangerous.

To slow resistance we need to cut the unnecessary use of antibiotics. Please take a look at the information about antibiotic resistance and read about our Antibiotic Awareness Campaign and how we are inviting the public, students and educators, farmers, the veterinary and medical communities and professional organisations, to become Antibiotic Guardians.

We have also provided resources to help you spread the message about making better use of antibiotics and help save this vital medicine from becoming obsolete.
