Druglink interview 2012 – Clare Gerada by Andy McNicoll

As Chair of The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), Dr Gerada’s spirited opposition to the health bill has won her many plaudits. But while much of her time and energy in the last year has been ploughed into debating NHS privatisation and the ‘brave new world’ of GP commissioning, it is substance misuse that Dr Gerada describes as her ‘passion’. Druglink caught up with Dr Gerada, a former DrugScope trustee, to get her take on the substance misuse sector and how she thinks it will fare under the coalition’s vision for health and social care. Interview by Andy McNicoll.
