Antimicrobial Resistance

Antibiotic resistance is now a major threat to public health. New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases. With 80% of the UK’s antibiotics currently prescribed in primary care, GPs are in a position to be able to significantly influence the future viability of antibiotics.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the greatest health and public health challenges of our time. If we do not take action now, rates of resistance will continue to increase; we then face the real possibility that infections will become more difficult to treat, and that large swathes of modern medicine will become untenable.
