NOAH produces briefing paper on antimicrobials in veterinary medicines
NOAH has produced a briefing paper on antimicrobials in veterinary medicines, to help Members of Parliament and Peers remain well-informed about this important topic.
NOAH chief executive Phil Sketchley said: “NOAH welcomed the opportunity to attend the All Party Parliamentary Group on Antibiotics meeting on animal use and selection of antibiotic resistant bacteria, which was held at Portcullis House in June.
“During the discussion that followed the presentations, a number of issues were discussed regarding the authorisation and use of antimicrobials in veterinary medicine. In the limited time that was available, it was not possible for a full and in depth discussion to take place.
“We have produced this paper to help give further background on this topic,” he said.
