If you take antibiotics when you do not need them, you could be helping to make bacteria resistent to them. It means that the drugs can no longer kill the bacteria they are meant to fight. Your GP will advise when it is appropriate to take antibiotics.

Named Accountable GP
All patients at Howden Medical Centre are registered to the practice not to an individual GP and this will remain unchanged.
All GP surgeries are now required to provide all their patients with a named accountable GP, who will have failsafe responsibility for the coordination of a patientís overall care and support that we provide to you should the need arise.
If you want to check who your named accountable GP is please contact the surgery.
Please be aware this does not mean you will always see this GP, you are still able to see any GP at the practice and the actual care you receive can be provided by any GP or a member of our nursing team when appropriate.
If you have a preference as to which GP is your named accountable GP, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate these requests, however this may only be possible where there is a significant medical reason for this.
You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions please contact the Practice Manager, Joanne Gill, on 01430 430318 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
