Use antibiotics on your doctor's advice: Antibiotics are essential to treat serious bacterial infections, but they are frequently being used to treat illnesses such as cough, earache and sore throats that can get better by themselves. Taking antibiotics encourages harmful bacteria that live inside you to become resistant. That means that antibiotics may not work when you really need them. Research shows that 38% of people still expect an antibiotic from a doctor's surgery, NHS walk-in centre or 'GP out of hours' service when they visited with a cough, flu or a throat, ear, sinus or chest infection in 2017!

Visit a walk-in centre, minor injuries unit or urgent care centre if you have a minor illness or injury (cuts, sprains or rashes) and it can't wait until your GP surgery is open.
Ask your local pharmacist for advice – your pharmacist can give you advice about many common minor illnesses, such as diarrhoea, minor infections, headaches, sore throats, or travel health.
