Summary of report contentHealthwatch Stockton on Tees decided to investigate public awareness and experiences of local alcohol services, alcohol related services (such as advice/counselling), alcohol-related hospital admissions and A&E attendances in the area. The objectives of the report were to research and gain an understanding of the views of a cross section of Stockton on-Tees residents regarding local alcohol services and the equivalent service provision and to work collaboratively with the JSNA, to capture intelligence to support and ensure commissioning strategies are cohesive. This will enable better provision of services, for those in areas of greatest need. Healthwatch staff designed a questionnaire to gather the awareness, views and opinions of members of the public, carers and service-users of alcohol services. The questionnaires were circulated via email, social media, face-to-face at the Healthwatch Stockton-on-Tees annual event and to local service-user groups. In addition to the questionnaire, Healthwatch had also received intelligence about alcohol-related service provision within Stockton via its Information and Signposting Service and during general public engagement. 75 surveys were completed in total. The report contains recommendations but no response from the provider.
