Antibiotics

The Surgery is reinforcing the message that antibiotics do not work against viruses such as colds and flu and therefore are of no benefit in treating viral infections. Antibiotics are effective only against bacterial infections. The correct diagnosis and the decision about whether antibiotics are necessary can only be made by a clinical staff member.  

Below are some useful links for managing ailments without antibiotics.  

 Common cold & flu

Sore Throat

Cough & Acute Bronchitis

Acute Sinusitis
