Dame Sally Davies (Chief Medical Officer, England) – The Drugs Don’t Work: A Global Threat
Antibiotics add 20 years to our lives and for the last 70 years, since the manufacture of penicillin in 1943, they have allowed us to survive extraordinary operations and lifethreatening infections. However, resistance to our current range of antibiotics is the new inconvenient truth.
Dame Sally Davies, the first woman to hold the post of Chief Medical Officer for England and independent advisor to the Government on medical matters, will be appearing at Cumberland Lodge to talk about her research in this area revealing that if we don’t act now, we risk the health of our parents, our children and our grandchildren.
