Share something that’s important to you about group B Strep using #GBSaware

Take a selfie holding a sign on which you’ve written: ‘It’s important to know…’ and then your statement. Upload your photos on your social media, tagging us on facebook, twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn or Pinterest and including the hashtag #GBSaware. Or email it to info@gbss.org.uk.

Make a short video of yourself speaking to camera, finishing the statement ‘It’s important to know…’ Upload these to your own YouTube channel, or share on social media, again with the hashtag #GBSaware, and tag us. Please also send the link to us at info@gbss.org.uk.

We will share many of these on social media.
