Use antbiotics correctly, KGH pharmacist urges

Use antbiotics correctly, KGH pharmacist urges Kettering General Hospital is urging local people to use antibiotics in the right way during a world awareness week designed to combat the rise of dangerous antibiotic resistant organisms.

The hospital’s antibiotic pharmacist, and her team, will be promoting the appropriate use messages in the hospital’s Foundation Wing atrium and in key staff areas throughout World Antibiotic Awareness Week (November 13 to 19).

The international campaign – which is supported in the UK by Public Health England – aims to encourage the correct, limited and targeted, prescription of antibiotics and to encourage patients to complete their courses, as per their doctors’ instructions, to prevent resistance.
