Investigating local policy drivers for alcohol harm prevention: a comparative case study of two local authorities in England

23 de novembro de 20141min

Background

The recent transfer of public health teams to local authorities in England off ers opportunities for new policy approaches to tackling alcohol harm. The new responsible authority status of directors of public health, for example with regard to licensing applications, raises the prospect of reducing excessive alcohol consumption through local availability measures. Local authorities are also responsible for the commissioning of community-based treatment services. We used a case study approach to identify the major drivers and characteristics of local alcohol policies and services in two contrasting local authorities.
