Health Minister Lord Syed Kamall plays a key role in the government’s response to a recent review on overprescribing of medicines in England. Kamall’s involvement emphasises the need for cultural changes, such as increased social prescribing, to reduce reliance on medication.

Syed Kamall said:

“This vital review is a significant step forward which will benefit patients across the country, and we will help ensure busy primary care teams are supported with improved systems and resources.

Whether it’s helping to change a culture of demand for medicines that are not needed, providing better alternatives and preventing ill-health in the first place, we will take a range of steps to act on this review.”
