Patient Information Leaflets Infections - Primary Care

"Taking antibiotics for the wrong reasons or incorrectly can cause bacteria to become resistant to antibiotic treatments. So, when you need antibiotics in the future they may no longer work, with obvious consequences."

This leaflet gives information for patients on the best use of antibiotics.
