National Concern for Healthcare Infections supports the aims and ambitions of Antibiotic Action, and calls on all concerned to take action to ensure new and effective antibiotics are available to treat infections – both now and in the future.
In addition raising awareness of health care infections, NCHI works hard to support and offer advice of people who contract healthcare infections, and for whom the availaiblity of effective antibiotic treatments are essential.
Graham Tanner, Chair of NCHI says “We have direct experience of the devastating effect of multi-drug resistant infections on the lives of patients and their families – and this is in the presence of currently available treatments. The rise in antibiotic resistance is seriously threatening our ability to effectively treat patients – the consequences of no new antibiotic agents is unthinkable.“.
NCHI calls on all concerned to ACT NOW!
