Pharmacists across Greater Manchester are playing a vital role in the fight against antimicrobial resistance as part of this year’s Antibiotic Awareness Week.
Pharmacies will be adding awareness-raising stickers to all antibiotics dispensed. The stickers have been specially designed for patients and carers and highlight the three vital must-does when using antibiotics:
- Complete the course
- Never share
- Return unused antibiotics to your pharmacy
It is supported by a social media campaign encouraging everyone to sign up as Antibiotic Guardians and then share it on social media. It only takes a second to sign up and make your pledge at http://antibioticguardian.com/. If you tag us @GMLPC_ we will retweet and share your posts as well.
The campaign also involves GPs, dentists and optometrists across Greater Manchester.
