Drunk or Drugged in A&E

Comment 8th July 2010

Vast amounts of NHS resources are spent on treating people who have injured themselves or others through alcohol or drug use especially in A&E.  Others who have been injured or are sick through no fault of their own have their waiting times increased. There is often the unplesantness and danger for staff and members of the public in the presence of intoxicated persons. Financial contribution towards treatment ahould be levied on those whose injuries or illness have obviously been caused by intoxication.

Why does this matter?

Deter individuals from becoming intoxicated

Plough back resources into the NHS
