NHS HEALTH SCOTLAND ALCOHOL RESOURCES.



All NHS Health Scotland alcohol materials continue to be under embargo until the Scottish Government's changes are finalised.  The crux of the matter surrounds the wording about the number of alcohol free days per week that is recommended.  It is looking likely that they will have to replace all the current alcohol materials and arrange printing of new supplies.  NHS Health Scotland will keep us updated and hopefully an agreement can be reached early 2017.
