Using Antibiotics Responsibly

on .

Did you know that more than 174,000 prescriptions were written for antibiotics in Solihull last year?

Annual European Antibiotics Awareness Day on 18 November raises awareness of the need to use antibiotics in a responsible way to help keep them effective for the future.

Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group is working with the borough’s GPs to spread the message that inappropriate use and prescribing of antibiotics is causing resistance to the drugs. Patients are being reminded to complete courses of antibiotics as prescribed.
