Libby,

Alcohol Concern have long campaigned for consitent monitoring of those entering alcohol treatment, so that we can track levels of need and (eventually/hopefully) numbers waiting for treatment.

The DH (who need greater stats on alcohol treatment) have requested this work and the NTA are right to use NDTMS (with all its faults)for this as using a new system would be very confusing - the point is that those alcohol services not currently entering NDTMS data must recieve the resources needed to set this up on their systems and the staff training required.

The DH and NTA need to support alcohol services not currently using NDTMS to set this up from scratch, just as drug agencies were supported when NDTMS first started - we must ensure this support is properly provided. To not do so would be an own goal.
