Message to patients NHS App Antibiotic Awareness Week Stay Well This Winter – What We Recommend Your General Practice Team is Here to Help Cambridge and Peterborough Virtual Diabetes Event Did your child miss their flu vaccine at school? Asthma Practice Nurse Vacancy Stay Sober this October Antibiotics vs. Cold and Flu
This week is Antibiotic Awareness Week so we thought we’d share some relevant and useful information with our patients.
Now that winter is here, there are more cold and flu viruses circulating. Many patients believe that antibiotics will help with their viral infection but in most cases they aren’t the right treatment. Antibiotics only treat bacterial infections, not viral infections. Below is some guidance on self-care and information on how long most conditions will last. If you find your symptoms continue beyond the suggested time frames or are getting significantly worse, then seek help from either a Pharmacist or your GP Practice.
Contact your GP Practice or a Pharmacist if your symptoms are getting worse or if you are not better by the times above.
