Cut use of antibiotics, doctors warned

9th November 2009

The European Centre of Disease Prevention and Control has warned that GPs should decrease their use of antibiotics.

Dominic Monnet, a senior expert at the ECDC, told the Daily Telegraph: "If this wave of antibiotic resistance gets over us, we will not be able to do organ transplants, hip replacements, cancer chemotherapy, intensive care and neonatal care for premature babies. It is the whole span of modern medicine as we know it, that we will not be able to do if we lose antibiotics."
