||European Antibiotic Awareness
A series of five videos, providing a light-hearted way of reminding people to take care, not antibiotics for use in GP surgeries and other waiting areas. Produced to support European Antibiotic Awareness Day and the promotion of prudent antibiotic use. For use in hospitals and primary care settings.
Antibiotics are important medicines for treating bacterial infections in both humans and animals. Antibiotics are losing their effectiveness at an increasing rate. Antibiotic resistance is one of the most significant threats to patients' safety in Europe. It is driven by overusing antibiotics and prescribing them inappropriately. To slow down the development of antibiotic resistance it is important to use antibiotics in the right way, to use the right drug, at the right dose, at the right time for the right duration. Antibiotics should be taken as prescribed, never saved for later or shared with others.
Watch the video 'What is antibiotic resistance, and why should we care?', then visit antibioticguardian.com to make a pledge about how you’ll make better use of antibiotics and help save this vital medicine from becoming obsolete.

World Health Organization Depression
At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don't know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognising depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery.
