Alcohol use has health and social consequences borne by individuals, their families, and the wider community.
Reducing harmful drinking is one of seven priority areas that Public Health England is focusing efforts on securing improvement.
The Department of Health commissioned PHE to produce an evidence review of the public health burden of alcohol, published in December 2016.
The local alcohol profiles have been designed to provide information for local government, health organisations, commissioners and other agencies to monitor:
- the impact of alcohol on local communities
- services and initiatives that have been put in place to prevent and reduce the harmful impact of alcohol
The data is updated once per quarter.
