Antibiotics & Self-Care Posted on 30 Nov 2018

As part of World Antibiotics Awareness Week, please see the links below for useful information on the importance of self-care when treating viral infections.

There are 2 key points to note that can help you:

​1. The importance of hand washing to limit the spread of infections and protection from catching infections

​2. Consulting with your local pharmacist first (for both adults and children).  They are trained to advise on medicines to treat symptoms of viral infections, know when a patient should be referred to a doctor and some are able to offer Pharmacy First services - a scheme allowing local pharmacies to dispense medications free of charge to those normally eligible for free prescriptions.
