The students spent the week handing out flyers and posters as well as holding lectures for younger year groups on the threat of antibiotic resistance.

One of the student volunteers Jocelyn Gilmour said: “Antibiotic resistance is no longer a problem of the future but a problem of right now.

"Without effective antibiotics, basic healthcare procedures will become dangerous and life threatening.”
