Antibiotic Guardian

AB

European Antibiotic Awareness Day on 18 November is a European-wide annual event that aims to raise awareness on how to use antibiotics in a responsible way that will help keep them effective for the future. We are encouraging patients to take part by watching the ‘Antibiotic Guardian’ video and choosing a pledge and become an Antibiotic Guardian at www.antibioticguardian.com

 

Did you know?

  • Antibiotics are important medicines that are losing their effectiveness at an increasing rate because of antibiotic resistance. There are already bacteria that are resistant to most of our current antibiotics.
  • Antibiotic resistant bacteria don’t just infect you; they can spread to other people in close contact with you.
  • It is important we use our existing antibiotics wisely and make sure these lifesaving medicines continue to stay effective for ourselves, our children and grandchildren.
  • Effective antibiotics are needed to prevent infections after surgery such as hip replacements or heart surgery and are essential to help transplant patients survive.  
  • Chemotherapy is an important weapon in the fight against cancer, but did you know the procedure destroys our white blood cells, which we need to fight off infection? Without antibiotics chemotherapy will become increasingly dangerous.
  • Antibiotics should only be taken when prescribed by a health professional.

 

Colds and most coughs, sinusitis, otitis media (earache) and sore throats often get better without antibiotics. Your GP may not prescribe antibiotics for these conditions but your local pharmacy can help provide self-care advice and suitable over the counter medicines to treat your symptoms.

 

If you are prescribed antibiotics:

Take the antibiotic medicine at the dose prescribed, at the correct time and for the right duration. Never save antibiotics for later or share with others.
