Shocking new figures reveal almost 10 million people were taken to hospital for alcohol-related problems in just one year. New statistics released by Alcohol Concern have shed light on the booze crisis currently taking hold in Britain.
According to the charity, the NHS is facing “intolerable strain” from people needing help for alcohol-related problems. In just one year alone (between 2012 – 2013), 9.9 million people in England were admitted to hospital, either in the form of A&E visits or as outpatients.
This is a significant rise compared to stats from 2011-2012, which showed only 1.2 million alcohol admissions were made in one year.
Alcohol Concern fear millions of people in Britain are drinking more than six to eight units of alcohol a day. Using their own Alcohol Harm Map, the charity was able to identify that men aged 55-75 were the most likely to be hospitalised for alcohol abuse. It was also found that people living in the South East are the highest risk drinkers, while the most alcohol-related deaths (3,501 in 2012) occurred in the North East.
