Paying the price of alcohol

I’ve attached a brilliant infographic entitled ‘paying the price of alcohol’ and produced by Alcohol Concern and Public Health England that summarises the impact of alcohol.  It looks at all categories including:

  • Impact on the UK
  • Impact on the NHS
  • Impact on health
  • Impact on mortality

And then offers the benefits of cutting down and guidance on the recommended units per day and information on weight implications in terms of calories content of alcohol.

It’s a good overview and snapshot and it would be great if these were displayed in all GP surgery waiting rooms with signposting of where to go if you need help or support with alcohol.  A girl can dream ……. 🙂
