    ummm.....
    antibiotics do not work for colds  as they are viral infections ( whereas antbiotics  kill bacteria ) 
    and therefore should not be prescribed for that.   
    a lot of work has been going on to reduce inappropriate use of antibiotics
    but clearly more needs to be done as too many GPs ignore the guidelines.
