Make your pledge!
Calderdale, the future of antibiotics is in our hands
About the campaign...
Get a Grip on Antibiotics is a campaign that aims to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance across Calderdale and encourage people to pledge to keep antibiotics working. If we carry on misusing antibiotics, in the future they could stop working altogether, so it’s now more important than ever that they are taken correctly.
If we carry on taking antibiotics incorrectly, in the future they could stop working altogether. Without effective antibiotics, many common treatments will become increasingly dangerous – including setting broken bones, treatments for cancer and routine operations including hip replacements and caesarean sections.

Taking antibiotics you don’t need today means they won’t be there when you and your family really need them tomorrow.
The concept of this campaign was inspired by the "Seriously Resistant" campaign by NHS Leeds CCG and the "Antibiotic Guardian" and "Keep Antibiotics Working" campaigns by Public Health England.
