Poison or Cure? An authentic yet light-hearted take on the world of medicines and healthcare in the UK.

We’re inviting patients and members of the public to join in conversation with the Three Apothecaries for an evening of fun, laughter, and tears as we shine the spotlight on the relationship between people and their medicines.

It’s hard work being a patient. The treatment burden means we all need to be project managers as we try and navigate the healthcare system. The context of people’s daily lives is often more important in the effective use of medicines than merely prescribing the right medicine and explaining how to take it.

Prescribing medicine is the most common intervention we make in healthcare. We know that people’s beliefs about medicines have an enormous and underestimated impact on their use of them in practice.

Come and share your medicine stories, as we explore the psychology surrounding our use of medicines, including:

Patients do the strangest things

The dangers of single organologists...

Do our medicines work?

An informed patient is not an obedient patient.

“I’ve probably poisoned more patients than I’ve cured”
