The 3rd national emergency department survey of alcohol identification and intervention activity

NHS Evidence - health management - Wed, 04/05/2016 - 12:13

Alcohol Research UK -
This research shows that emergency departments in England have increased the level of alcohol screening for adults - with the offer of specialist support for those attending with alcohol-related health problems and for those who frequently attend. However, it also shows that while most emergency departments attending to under-18s ask them about their drinking few do so routinely. It concludes that this needs to improve to ensure young people considered to be at risk of developing drink-related ill health receive the specialist support they need.

Registration refused: a study on access to GP registration in England

Doctors of the World

This report finds that at least two in five people attempting to register with doctor’s surgeries are being wrongly refused. The biggest barrier was people's inability to provide paperwork – be that ID or proof of address or immigration status. Everyone living in the UK is entitled to free primary care and NHS guidelines issued in November 2015 state that patients do not need proof of ID or address to register and see a doctor, but inconsistent and unclear guidance in the past has led to confusion in some practices that mean people are still being turned away by surgery staff.
