GPs could face quinolone antibiotics prescribing restrictions from next year


Use quinolones a handful of times a year when only choice with resistant bugs and have no real issue with restrictions for safety reasons.

Something the EU should have sorted out years ago and would have help restrict antibiotic overuse in non medical circumstances.
