No alcohol cash
7:00pm Friday 8th February 2013 in News
A HEALTH boss has confessed there will be no new cash to tackle alcohol abuse in Worcestershire even though thousands are drinking at harmful levels.
An alcohol plan for the county was approved at a meeting of the Worcestershire Health and Wellbeing Board.
However, bosses have admitted they will not have any extra funds to help the estimated 105,122 adults in Worcestershire who drink at levels which damage their health: In Malvern Hills there are 3,360 people in this higher risk group.
In Worcester there are 2,963 and Wychavon 4,987.
