  • Alcohol-Related Disease

    Alcohol Related Disease

    Alcohol-Related Disease: meeting the challenge of improved quality of care and better use of resources sets out a practical plan for implementing a national strategy to improve services for patients that repeatedly attend hospital because of their dependence on alcohol and associated health problems. Its recommendations aim to improve the effectiveness of hospital services for patients who are alcohol dependent and who present at hospital in several ways, often through A&E. The paper calls for a dedicated Alcohol Team and a lead clinician at consultant level. It suggests ways of coordinating alcohol policies across hospitals and local areas.
