Dear Member of Parliament, further to my recent email and letter to you with information about the lack of new antibiotics and the Antibiotic Action initiative, I am writing to inform you that this topic was featured on BBC Newsnight yesterday evening (Friday 30th November). You can view the episode here http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b01p4763/
If you have not already signed the petition, and you agree that action must be taken to discover, research and develop new antibiotics, please sign on-line http://antibiotic-action.com/join/; it will only take a few minutes. If you also wish to join the APPG on antibiotics, which will be chaired by Jamie Reed MP, please email me.
I do hope that we can work together on this important health issue.
