Making the most of medicines…

Spoonful of Sugar is a University College London spin-out company built on Professor Horne’s extensive research over the last twenty years, which has led to the development of a unique methodology for creating practical, personalised programmes to support patient and practitioner engagement around a medical innovation.

Decades of investment and innovation lie behind every prescription, yet according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), up to half of all prescribed medicines are not taken as advised. This can result in prolonged suffering, delayed recovery, with associated costs to the healthcare system, and ultimately, the failure of a new technology to fully deliver on its promise.

Our programmes are tailored and engineered to deliver specific engagement approaches with all relevant stakeholder groups, including patients, their carers, healthcare professionals, and policymakers.
