Become an Antibiotic Guardian

Antibiotic resistance remains 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: It is important to remember that antibiotics do not treat or prevent viruses, including the one that causes COVID19
To slow resistance we need to cut the unnecessary use of antibiotics. We invite the public, students and educators, farmers, the veterinary and medical communities and professional organisations, to become Antibiotic Guardians.
Call to action: Choose one simple pledge about how you’ll make better use of antibiotics and help save these vital medicines from becoming obsolete.
West Heath Primary Care Centre is also encouraging all our staff and patients to become Antibiotic Guardians and choose a pledge to help protect these vital medicines.
