    Lunch Hour Lectures - Autumn 2012

    Prof Nick Barber, Professor of the Practice of Pharmacy, UCL School of Pharmacy

    There will be over a billion prescription items dispensed in England in 2012, costing the NHS over £9bn. Most of these will be for patients with chronic conditions, yet we know that perhaps up to half of these patients will not take their medicine as prescribed. This lecture explores some of the reasons behind this, and outlines the development of a new NHS service to help patients with their medication.
