We are calling on the UK Government to take the following actions:

  • Set a target for reducing farm antibiotic use by 50% by 2020 and by 80% by 2025 including a target to cut the use of critically important antibiotics by 80% by 2020 and 95% by 2025.
  • Ban all preventative mass medication in feed or water, except for where disease has been diagnosed in some animals.
  • Annual national surveillance data on the human health impacts of antimicrobial resistance.
