Description:

The UK Chief Medical Officers commissioned an expert group to consider whether previous alcohol guidelines should be updated. The group reviewed the scientific evidence about the levels and types of health harm that alcohol can cause, depending on how much and how often people drink. The Chief Medical Officers have accepted the advice from the expert group as the basis for their new guidelines across the UK. The purpose of the consultation was to determine if the recommendations, and the reasons behind them, are clear and easy to understand and to ensure the new guidelines are as practical and useful as possible.
