Antibiotics Won’t Work!

 Dear All

ANTIBIOTICS WON’T WORK FOR VIRAL COUGHS, COLDS & ‘FLU

A new video campaign which features local schoolchildren is reminding people across the North East that a course of antibiotics is not required to treat common winter illnesses such as viral coughs, colds and ‘flu.

The video highlights the following website which the public are encouraged to visit for further information on self-care for common winter illnesses
