A New Study to Look at Non-Drug Treatment for People with Respiratory Infections
Inappropriate use of antibiotics means that bugs are becoming resistant. We need to look at ways to reduce antibiotic prescribing, whilst ensuring antibiotics are given to patients who really need it. We would like to know whether giving patients with a respiratory tract infections (such as sore throat, or common cold) a ‘delayed’ or ‘just in case’ prescription is a safe and effective approach to reduce unnecessary prescribing. We want to hear your views and experiences of delayed antibiotics.
