As pubs in England reopened yesterday, and the summer weather continues, a Priory expert has urged people to reassess their relationship with alcohol so they are not regularly exceeding daily intake guidelines, or binge drinking, and putting their health at risk.

Her comments come after the National Chair of the Police Federation warned that pubs opening could be “a countdown to party time”, and that the problems associated with heavy drinking could put even more pressure on police officers and the NHS.

Lockdown has changed the drinking patterns of millions for whom regular, sustained alcohol consumption is now the norm.
