‘Keep Antibiotics Working’ was launched by PHE across England on 23 October 2017 to support the government’s efforts to reduce inappropriate prescriptions for antibiotics. The campaign warns people that taking antibiotics when they are not needed puts them at risk of a more severe or longer infection, and urges people to take their doctor’s advice on antibiotics. Healthcare professionals can download resources to support the campaign and increase public awareness.
We’re asking the NHS, local authorities, academic institutions and others to support Antibiotic Guardian to make a big impact by sharing their planned activities, outcomes, pictures, and case studies of their campaigns with the Antibiotic Guardian Chair, Dr Diane Ashiru-Oredope by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please use the #AntibioticGuardian hashtag on social media to promote the campaign. For copies of Tweetable graphics or messages, email email@example.com.
