Patient professional reference

Professional Reference articles are written by UK doctors and are based on research evidence, UK and European Guidelines. They are designed for health professionals to use. You may find the Coughs and Colds in Children article more useful, or one of our other health articles.

Public Health England (PHE) produce an antibiotics leaflet for GPs to print out and hand to the patient which explains why they have not been prescribed an antibiotic or which defers the prescription for a number of days.
