  • e-Bug resources are research based and have been developed by Public Health England in collaboration with teachers, health professionals and students and to date, the e-Bug programme has been used widely in England and Scotland where it is linked to the National Curriculum.

It will be a fun and interactive session designed to allow participants to engage children and young people in learning about infection and antibiotics.
