Commenting on the release of today’s NHS health survey for England, John Timothy Portman Group Chief Executive, said:

“These figures tell a positive story about responsible drinking, highlighting that in England the majority of people (60%) are drinking at low risk levels. The number of people drinking over 14 units a week has fallen since 2011 and binge drinking has also declined in the long term. This again shows that it’s targeted help for higher risk drinkers that’s needed to make a difference.”
