Horder Healthcare supports World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2017

Posted on Tuesday 14 November 2017 in Announcements

Horder Healthcare is proud to pledge our commitment to the universal Antibiotic Guardianship programme. We are committed to ensuring that the lifelong use of antibiotics in the fight against infections is protected to ensure that surgery and treatment of vulnerable patients can be sustained as we move forward into the future.

The Antibiotic Guardianship Programme is a national campaign from Public Health England to support the Government’s efforts to reduce inappropriate prescriptions for antibiotics.  Unnecessary use drives antibiotic resistance and means they may become less likely to work in the future. The government aims to halve inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics in the UK by 2020.

Join Horder Healthcare and pledge how you’ll make better use of antibiotics and help save these vital medicines from becoming obsolete.
