This resource brings together a collection
of sources of information on alcohol; its use and misuse and the impact it has
on health and well-being.
Information is included on national,
regional and local policies, the prevalence of alcohol use/misuse, the cost of
alcohol related harms through health, crime and social impacts, and the need
for services, service provision and indicators/outcome measurement.
Work on this resource is ongoing and the information will be updated as new material becomes available.

Alcohol in the East Midlands
Pubs, clubs and alcohol related ambulance pick ups
Building on previous work using ambulance call out data, EMPHO have updated the maps showing alcohol related ambulance pick-ups, refining the methodology and providing maps for more areas.
If you require a map for an East Midlands area which is not included in this report please contact us.
Pub, club and off-licence density
EMPHO have also updated the report looking at pub and club density. The new report builds on the previous methodology and maps ‘hotspots’ of pub, club and off-licence density in the East Midlands.
Healthy foundations and alcohol
This report looks at the motivational groups described in the Healthy Foundations segmentation model by their alcohol-related behaviour and attitudes. It looks at which groups drink above the recommended levels, where they drink, how often, what types of alcohol they drink and their attitudes to reducing their alcohol intake.
The aim of this report is to inform social marketing and behaviour change interventions involving alcohol. It does this by describing the drinking behaviours of the different motivational groups and by providing the pen portraits and intervention options for those segments.
Alcohol JSNA Template
EMPHO have produced a template outlining possible indicators to use in creating a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment for Alcohol. This includes a framework of potential indicators, their definition, the geographic level available and the source of the data.
Alcohol Related Accident & Emergency Attendances: a scoping study
EMPHO have produced a report looking at the routine data currently collected in A&E departments. The report aims to:
- Scope what A&E data is readily available
- Examine A&E data quality for each provider in the East Midlands
- Investigate the potential of A&E data to inform local work on preventing alcohol related harm, including proposals for action that might be taken to improve data usability
In addition to the series of reports on NI39 in the East Midlands, EMPHO have produced a report looking at the hypertension element of the alcohol-related hospital admissions. This looks at the contribution of hypertension to NI39 for the East Midlands PCTs.
EMPHO have produced a report looking at the national indicator for hospital admissions for alcohol related harm (NI39) in more detail for the East Midlands. This report looks at links with deprivation, breakdown of admissions by sex, age and cause, re-admissions, elective versus non-elective admissions, zero bed days and day of the week of admissions. It also uses People 2 Places segmentation tool to examine which segmentation groups are most likely to be admitted to hospital for alcohol related harm, and to provide areas with information to target social marketing interventions.
Local level versions of NI39 detailed analysis are now available for the East Midlands. This analysis is provided at PCT and top-tier local authority level are available:
Survey question bank. Tobacco and Alcohol: Knowledge, Beliefs and Attitudes
This paper identifies and describes the main sources of survey data in England on knowledge and beliefs of, and attitudes to, tobacco and alcohol. Descriptions are provided for the available sources of data, the methods used for their collection and their limitations. The focus is on data that are systematically and regularly collected from the national population and are in the public domain.
East Midlands LAPE indicator summary
The latest Local Alcohol Profiles for England (LAPE 2010) have been released by the North West Public Health Observatory. This is the fifth annual publication of LAPE. The profiles contain 23 alcohol-related indicators for every local authority and primary care trust in England.
EMPHO have created an updated summary of the East Midlands indicators from the LAPE tool. This indicator spreadsheet shows East Midlands Local Authorities and PCTs ranked with the most challenged areas highlighted. It also shows “traffic light” indicators for Local Authorities based on significant difference from the East Midland average.
