Call You and Yours

Presented by Julian Worricker.

How can we reduce the harm alcohol causes our society?

A new report from the National Audit Office puts the cost of alcohol misuse to the National Health Service at £2.7 billion a year. How can we reduce the harm alcohol causes in financial terms and the harm caused to individuals and families? And how do we balance that against individuals' right to a social drink? We hear your views.

With guests:
Nick Sheron, Alcohol Health Alliance
David Poley, Portman Group
Dr James Warner, Consultant in Older Adults Psychiatry
Prof Gerard Hastings, Institute for Social Marketing at Stirling
Shona Robinson, Minister for Public Health, Scottish Parliament.
