A massive 212 NHS organisations across England have signed up to help their staff take a break from drinking alcohol for 31 days in January.
From small community practices to one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe, staff from all areas of the NHS will join together in a virtual community that will say no to drinking, providing them with an opportunity to reflect on their relationship with alcohol.
NHS Employers has been working with Alcohol Concern and Public Health England (PHE) over the last few months to help support organisations with their local campaigns. We caught up with Duncan Selbie, chief executive, PHE to chat to him about the national campaign, the support from NHS Employers and the importance of having this opportunity to reflect on our relationship with alcohol.
