RCP president Professor Dame Jane Dacre has called for a change in society’s perception of alcohol consumption to 'ensure public education reflects the risks' following a major study of the global burden of alcohol concluded that there was no healthy level of alcohol consumption.

Simple, cheap and effective changes to alcohol policy by both the EU and its member states have the potential to dramatically reduce liver mortality in Europe, according to research published this month by RCP representative Professor Nick Sheron.
The RCP announced that it will be supporting EU Awareness Week on Alcohol related Harm (AWARH), taking place from 16-20 November 2015. Through a range of activities, AWARH seeks to highlight the negative effects of alcohol and call for greater policy action to address the problems it can cause.
