*CAUTION – Explicit Language in this episode*

How much would you worry about a simple cut ?  Probably not much as long as you can get to a medical professional on time and obtain the correct treatment. But what if I was to say that in a few years to come, antibiotics will no longer work? And a simple cut could leave you hugely at risk of sepsis and death. This could  be the situation unless we  address resistant microbes in our environment and joining me on the podcast to talk about this subject is Professor Dame Sally Davies.

Dame Sally was the Chief Medical Officer for England and Senior Medical Advisor to the UK Government from 2011-2019. Dame Sally Davies was appointed as the UK Government’s Special Envoy on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in 2019. She is also the 40th Master of Trinity College, Cambridge University.

In the 2020 New Year Honours, Dame Sally became the second woman (and the first outside the Royal family) to be appointed Dame Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath (GCB) for services to public health and research, having received her DBE in 2009.

On  the show we talk about
