Antimicrobial Resistance and Stewardship

Committing to tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

This is a new central resource for the fight against antimicrobial resistance, and promoting the best use of antimicrobial stewardship.

We're bringing pharmacy expertise and knowledge to the fight, and with your help we can achieve much more.

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) means antibiotics are becoming less effective, and infections more dangerous.

Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) is the healthcare response to this threat – developing better ways to prescribe, use, and dispose of antimicrobials.

With more than one and a half million people visiting their pharmacist every day, you can make sure patients know how to best use these vital medicines. And with your help, we’ll ensure antibiotics remain a powerful weapon against infection and disease.
