Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing us today.
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.
To slow resistance we all need to cut the unnecessary use of antibiotics. We’ve pledged to become Antibiotic Guardians, to help make better use of antibiotics and help save such vital medicines from becoming obsolete.
We audit our prescribing practice, which alongside having a resident Superintendent Pharmacist to ensure our service standards, helps to make sure we’re always prescribing appropriately.
