Antibiotics

Public Health England’s Keep Antibiotics Working national campaign returns to reduce patient expectations for antibiotics, urging them to always take their doctor’s advice.

The campaign will run between 23 October and 16 December across England, supported with advertising on TV, radio, video on demand, digital, social media, search, PR activity and partnerships with local pharmacies and GP surgeries.

Key messages:  

  • Taking antibiotics when you don’t need them puts you and your family at risk
  • Taking antibiotics encourages harmful bacteria that live inside you to become resistant. This means that antibiotics may not work when you need them next time
  • Always take your doctor’s advice on antibiotics
