Latest News & Announcements

Antibiotics

Your Doctor may choose not to treat a sore throat, cold or cough with an antibiotic. This is in line with research based evidence that these conditions do not respond to antibiotics - they do not get better quicker or make you feel better.

In addition antibiotics can cause serious infections to develop, such as C.Diff (a serious diarrhoeal illness) or MRSA (superbug infection).

Try the following:

  • Paracetamol will lower temperature and ease symptoms
  • Visit your local Pharmacist who can give advice about medicines available over the counter to relieve symptoms
  • Drink plenty fluid
  • Try to avoid the spread of infection

Sore throat symptoms normally last for a week and 9 out of 10 patients recover in 7 days without antibiotics. The common cold normally lasts for 2 1/2 weeks and 8 out of 10 patients recover in 14 days without antibiotics. A cough normally last 3 weeks and is not helped by antibiotics if otherwise fit and well.

If you become more unwell or your symptoms change or worsen contact the Practice or NHS24 out of hours Phone: 111.
