Alcohol misuse is a common problem in England, and Lambeth has high rates of alcohol misuse and abuse.

Public Health carried out a rapid needs assessment to provide evidence to support the commissioning of alcohol services for the Lambeth population. There are high levels of alcohol-related morbidity and mortality. In line with national figures, men are far more likely to suffer ill health due to alcohol misuse.

The needs assessment shows that Lambeth is quick to get people into treatment, but that more could be done on prevention.
