Policy Context Underpins The Government’s Alcohol Strategy, March 2012 The Drug Strategy 2010 Our health and wellbeing today Public health outcomes framework Health and social care act 2012 Commissioning for Recovery (NTA 2010) JSNA
Prevention and Early Intervention Key Issues and recommendations -Alcohol
Key Issues - Alcohol Higher alcohol related hospital admissions and projected to go up based on the historical data. About 20% of WF residents identified as risk drinkers Alcohol specific hospital admissions for men in WF in 2010/11 were significantly higher than England and London. The admission rate for women in WF is higher than London average but the differences are not statistically significant.
Key Issues - Alcohol 3,026 alcohol related recorded crimes in WF in 2011/12. Most alcohol related incidents occur in the following wards – High Street, Lea Bridge, Wood Street and Leytonstone. These wards have higher indices of multiple deprivations than the WF average.

Recommendations Review current Alcohol liaison nurse post to ensure that it would include case finding and deliver IBA; medical management of patients with alcohol problems; liaison with community alcohol and other specialist services Embedding IBA in frontline staff as part of their initial assessment process. This will help to reduce alcohol use to low risk level Full analysis of alcohol-related hospital admissions in WF is undertaken to establish which particular groups need to be targeted
Recommendations Review current alcohol treatment pathway to include prevention, early intervention, treatment and recovery Embedding school based substance misuse education and interventions into the WF school nurses programme. Greater utilization of outreach and safer neigbourhood services to identify street drinking hotspots to refer into appropriate services
Recommendations Population level awareness raising and social marketing targeted at groups at risk of hazardous or harmful drinking. This includes health promotion in pub settings Examine the potential to use local authority powers to limit proliferation of alcohol outlets. For example, local licensing departments can take into account the links between the availability of alcohol and alcohol related harm when considering a license application.

Recommendations Ensure wider coverage and better uptake of blood borne viruses screening and immunisation Increase drug awareness training through frontlines staff Engage community based generic services (tier 1) to identify signs of substance misuse e.g. domestic violence, safeguarding and risks of hidden harm.
Recommendations Ensure substance misuse is incorporated into any health promotion work in schools including Pupil Referral Units and alternative provisions

Recommendations Improve recovery focus stepped approaches which does not focus solely on abstinence. Increase access to GP Shared Care and primary care services for more stable service users. Increase access to Employment, Training, Education to ensure clients have access to supported housing and encourage diversionary activities which steer clients away from substance misuse such as sport, art, music etc.
Recommendations Increased partnership and promotion work to develop stronger links between community based generic services to reinforce and strengthen recovery and lessen the risks of relapse. Ensure all staff across all sectors, who regularly come into contact with clients with substance misuse or dual diagnosis (mental health and substance misuse), have the appropriate training and support relevant to their needs
Recommendations Commissioners to develop robust performance management systems to ensure effective monitoring Investigate reasons behind lack of engagement with treatment system particularly high attrition rate in criminal justice Robust mobile care planning across treatment system partnership
Young People – Key Issues Young people struggle with the transition to adult services and there are the obvious issues of their vulnerabilities within adult services and the appropriateness of these facilities for their needs There is no dedicated service in the borough to deal with young adults whose main substance is cannabis or cannabis and alcohol. Currently 722 deals with these clients or most of them would drop out. However the service is being reviewed due to recent budget cuts
Young People - Recommendations To have a dedicated person in 722 and a counterpart within adult services to deal specifically with clients aged (transition phase). There should be an allocation of funding for this post from adult services.
