NICE Quality Standards consultation - alcohol: preventing harmful alcohol use in the community (NICE) - TSI response - July 2014

TSI response (PDF 127KB). TSI points out that most shops selling alcohol also sell other age-restricted products such as tobacco and maybe fireworks or butane gas. The impact of the measures put forward in this consultation may therefore be of wider benefit in improving public health within communities. Recent changes in the delivery of public health provide a very real opportunity for new ways of working, strengthening the links between public health and regulatory services such as trading standards and licensing which can have a major impact on public health outcomes.
