Public Health England (PHE) produces the leaflet below which you may be given by your GP to explain why you have not been prescribed an antibiotic medicine. Or to explain why you can only collect a prescribed an antibiotic medicine after a certain date. This is because many illnesses do not need an antibiotic medicine and should clear up on their own.
