Adam Bakker



Dr Adam Bakker qualified in medicine in Holland, completing his GP training in Britain. Working in a central London practice since 1994, his interest in treatment for substance misuse became very useful. He set up a community alcohol service and treated several hundred patients with opiate substitution treatments. Analysis of his prescribing of benzodiazepines is this poster’s topic.  During his time in practice, he noted that interpretation of post-mortem drug levels varies greatly between institutes and often doesn’t take established tolerance or post-mortem redistribution into account. He is currently studying this issue and would like to hear from anybody who is interested in collaborating in this survey.
