World Antibiotic Awareness Week 18 - 24 November 2021
Posted on 21 Dec 2021
Do you have any unused or old antibiotics at home? We are asking you to return them to any local pharmacy as part of an Antibiotic Amnesty in support of World Antibiotic Awareness week (18-24 November)
Antibiotics are important medicines for treating bacterial infections but the more they are used the more bacteria are able to find ways to survive. This is known as antibiotic resistance and is a huge threat to our future health.
You can play your part in protecting antibiotics for the future by returning unused or old antibiotics to any local pharmacy.
Selly Park Surgery is also encouraging all our staff and patients to become Antibiotic Guardians and choose a pledge to help protect these vital medicines
