An A5 leaflet with the core message : "Taking antibiotics when you don’t need them puts you and your family at risk". Taking antibiotics encourages harmful bacteria that live inside you to become resistant. That means that antibiotics may not work when you need them next time. This puts you and your family at risk. A patient must take their doctor or nurse's advice when it comes to antibiotics.
