How can we help?

In England, around 15 million people have a long-term condition (LTC) and the optimal use of appropriately prescribed medicines is vital to the management of most LTCs.

It is estimated that between 30 and 50 per cent of prescribed medicines are not taken as recommended. It is therefore clear that non-adherence to appropriately prescribed medicines poses a health problem of major relevance to the NHS.

Research has shown that pharmacists can successfully intervene when a medicine is newly prescribed, with follow ups, to improve adherence and management of long-term term conditions.
