Dr Chris Van Tulleken is embarking on a daring medical experiment that could change the way we think about our health forever.

Britain is addicted to prescription drugs. They’re doing us more harm than good, the evidence for their efficacy is wafer-thin and they’re costing the NHS a fortune. It’s a medical crisis – and Chris is determined to do something about it.

So he’s setting up a radical new drug-free clinic in a busy GP surgery. For three months, he’s going to treat illnesses without antibiotics, control pain without painkillers, and wean some of Britain’s most drug-dependent patients off their “life-saving” drug regimes. Instead of giving his patients medicine, he’s going to take their medicine away.
