To celebrate 25 years of promoting best practice in healthcare, we have teamed up with Antibiotic Research UK in a partnership to help raise awareness of antibiotic resistance.
Antibiotic Research UK (ANTRUK) is the world’s first charity created to fight antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections through research, education and patient support.
We have brought together all our resources to support you in your knowledge of antibiotic resistant infections, antimicrobial prescribing, and stewardship. You can also find information on ANTRUK’s patient support and information programme, and details of how to take part in their annual fundraiser, 'The Great British Tea Party'.
