Leaders in one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe have pledged their support and will be encouraging their 16,000 staff to take part in Dry January 2015.

Dean Royles, their executive director of HR and organisational development who went alcohol free himself last year said “I did Dry January 2014 as an opportunity not to partake in alcohol during the course of the month. It was an experience to see what it meant."

We caught up with Dean to talk about Dry January 2015, why it's a good idea and why he's doing it again.

Getting involved

Download our free resources so you can encourage staff to participate in the 2015 Dry January campaign.

Working with Public Health England and Alcohol Concern, NHS Employers are helping NHS Organisations to support the campaign that encourages staff to give up alcohol for 31 days.

Evidence shows that staff participating in Dry January reflect on their alcohol intake for the remainder of the year and make a number of positive health choices as a result.

Resources ranging from posters and internet banners are all available free of charge from the NHS Employers website.
