It is the same in the Netherlands.
Not so long ago there was a research on the hospitals with the least patients infected by a certain bacteria ( dont recall the name) in hospitals. Netherlands took the Nr.1 spot.
The reason for this was that Dutch Doctors do not easily prescribe antibiotics to patients unless there is no other way around it. Patients tend to not follow the antibiotics treatment until the end which causes bacteria becoming immune to the medicine.
So yeah, UK Doctors are right to prescribe Aspirin in cases where Antibiotics are not needed.
