9 out of 10 sore throats are caused by viruses and require only simple treatments such as lozenges. Antibiotics are not necessary and using them not only means unwanted side-effects, it also adds to antibiotic resistance, meaning they won't work when you need them.
We can do a simple test in about 5-10 minutes to see if you are the 1 in 10 who will need antibiotics. We can them supply them if you are suitable or refer you to your NHS GP.
