Notes:

Research was carried out amongst 120 GPs in October 2013. Of these, 24 per cent were in the south east, 9 per cent in Scotland, 10 per cent in the north west, 30 per cent in the north east, 15 per cent in the Midlands, 8 per cent in the south west and 4 per cent in Wales.  

About the PCSG (Primary Care Society for Gastroenterology) - the voice of gastroenterology in primary care. The society was launched in 1985 and has forged strong links with several organisations both nationally and internationally.  Bodies such as the British Society of Gastroenterology, the Royal College of Physicians, NICE, and the RCGP all consult the PCSG regularly on gastroenterological subjects so that policies and guidelines can be influenced by primary care.

About European Antibiotics Awareness Day -  an annual European public health initiative that takes place on 18 November to raise awareness about the threat to public health of antibiotic resistance and prudent antibiotic use. The latest data confirms that across the European Union the number of patients infected by resistant bacteria is increasing and that antibiotic resistance is a major threat to public health. 

Prudent use of antibiotics can help stop resistant bacteria from developing and help kee
