Dr Jeffrey Fehler speaks to Hospital Times

9 July 2019

Our Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Jeffrey Fehler, spoke to Hospital Times about whether the UK is facing a crisis of opium addiction.

In the interview Dr Fehler says:

"I don't think I would call it a 'crisis', at least not yet and not in London where I work. I am aware that opiate prescribing in the UK has increased significantly over the past decade and this correlates directly with opiate-related deaths"
