'Dying for a drink': Launch of SHAAP alcohol mortality report

SHAAP Public meeting Edinburgh

Date: Friday, 26 October 2018


Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
Meeting Rooms 1+2
13 Queen Street


This meeting has been organised by Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) to launch its report: 'Dying for a drink' on alcohol mortality in Scotland. There were 1,235 alcohol-related deaths in Scotland in 2017, and 3,705 alcohol-attributable deaths in 2015. The report was compiled over several months by an expert group and delivered to the Scottish Government in September 2018; it will lead work to enhance understanding of alcohol-related deaths in Scotland and will also inform the development of evidence-based services that will support prevention, early intervention, treatment and recovery from alcohol-related problems.

SHAAP is delighted to invite you to attend this free event and tea & coffee will be provided.
Please note: Registration is essential to secure your place.
