'Alcohol-use disorders: preventing the development of hazardous and harmful drinking' has been released today. The guidance, produced by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), is for government, industry and commerce, the NHS and all those whose actions affect the population’s attitude to – and use of – alcohol.
The document makes a number of recommendations including strong calls for pricing measures and changes in how alcohol is marketed. See here for BBC coverage. You can access a podcast to hear Professor Eileen Kaner and Professor Anne Ludbrook discuss the guidance, or read Alcohol Concern's press release.
