KEEP CALM! ANTIBIOTICS AREN'T ALWAYS THE ANSWER!
ANTIBIOTICS DON'T WORK FOR VIRUSES
ANTIBIOTICS ONLY FIGHT INFECTIONS CAUSED BY BACTERIA
BACTERIA CAN ADAPT AND SURVIVE THE EFFECTS OF ANTIBIOTICS, SO THEY DON'T ALWAYS WORK
THE MORE YOU USE ANTIBIOTICS, THE MORE RESISTANT TO BACTERIA YOU BECOME
NO PRESCRIPTION NEEDED FOR VIRAL INFECTIONS LIKE:
SORE THROAT - LASTS ONE WEEK ON AVERAGE
COMMON COLD (LASTS FOR ONE AND A HALF WEEKS ON AVERAGE)
COUGH (LASTS THREE WEEKS ON AVERAGE)
EARACHE (LASTS FOUR DAYS ON AVERAGE)
SINUSITIS (LASTS TWO AND A HALF WEEKS ON AVERAGE)
Online access to medical records is here. This means that you will be able to access the information you need, to make the right choices about the care you receive, giving you increased control over your own care and care records. Access will allow you to easily and quickly, over the internet from home, work or on the move, view some of the electronic medical information held about you in the GP system. You will be required to register for online access, and will be given a password to activate your account. You will be required to verify your identification for security purposes. The practice is currently working towards enabling online access and will publish further information on the website.
