N Spyridis, M Sharland. The European Union Antibiotic Awareness Day: the paediatric perspective. Arch Dis Child 2008;93:909–10. Owing to human error a reference was inadvertently omitted. The reference is 12a:

SACAR Paediatric Subgroup. The use of antibacterials in children: a report of the Specialist Advisory Committee on Antimicrobial Resistance (SACAR) Paediatric Subgroup. J Antimicrob Chemother 2007;60(Suppl 1):i15–26.
