Antibiotics information

Both the NHS and health organisations across the world are trying to reduce the use of antibiotics, especially for health problems that are not serious.

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing us today.

Why it is relevant to you

Without effective antibiotics many routine treatments will become increasingly dangerous. Setting broken bones, basic operations, even chemotherapy and animal health all rely on access to antibiotics that work.

What we want you to do

To slow resistance we need to cut the unnecessary use of antibiotics.

taking antibiotics when you don't need them puts you and your family at risk
