January 2017: Sore throat test and treat - a £34 million question?

In this month’s podcast, James Cave (DTB Editor-in-Chief) and David Phizackerley (DTB Deputy Editor) discuss a proposal from NHS England to introduce a sore throat test-and-treat service in community pharmacies.

The editors also discuss pitolisant, a new drug for narcolepsy, and review the evidence for LAMA/LABA inhaler combinations for people with COPD.
