BSG responds to inquiry into alcohol strategy

Tom Smith, BSG Chief Executive

The BSG has submitted formal written evidence to the Health Select Committee's inquiry into the government's alcohol strategy. While the strategy has many strengths it does not present a clear vision for alcohol treatment services and we have highlighted the importance of Alcohol Care Teams in achieving this. We also call for a Minimum Unit Price of not less than 50p. Addressing these issues could present real opportunities for improving lives and mean long-term saving for the NHS.
