Tackling the Causes and Effects of Alcohol Misuse


The transfer of public health responsibilities from the NHS to local government and Public Health England (PHE) represents a unique opportunity to set out a local approach to tackling alcohol misuse. We are calling on Government to help people live healthier lives and tackle the harm caused by excessive drinking and alcohol dependence by:

  • reinvesting a fifth of existing alcohol duty in preventative measures
  • giving councils the power to take public health issues into account when making licensing decisions
  • supporting licensing and trading standards departments to better tackle the black market in alcohol.
