Will you pledge to be an Antibiotic Guardian?

AntibioticGuardian-Landscape -Large-300dpi (2)In the run-up to European Antibiotics Awareness Day on November 18, Calderdale CCG are running a campaign encouraging the wise prescription, use and disposal of antibiotics.

The correct use of antibiotics is vital in order for them to continue to work effectively. Routine operations, setting broken bones and even chemotherapy is dependent of antibiotics that work, and misuse can increase our resistance to these medicines.

To slow resistance we’re encouraging everyone in the CCG – staff, GPs and people working in practices around Calderdale – to sign up to become Antibiotic Guardian.

For more information on the correct use of antibiotics, why it’s so important and to pledge your support to the scheme visit the Antibiotic Guardian website. And be sure to look out for material on our own antibiotics awareness campaign over the coming weeks and months!
