A group of Westhoughton people was asked to discuss the issue of alcohol consumption in their local area. The engagement for this report was prompted by a public health report suggesting higher alcohol in-take in Westhoughton. Comments in the report explore whether people think doctors and health professionals are getting a true picutre of alcohol in-take levels. The reasons for drinking alcohol are also explored. The report does not make recommendations and there was no relevant provider to ask for response.
