Alcohol minimum unit pricing policy and its impact across the UK

21st November 2023, 10:00am - 11:30am , Virtual Event, Online

ColinĀ AngusĀ is a Senior Research Fellow and alcohol policy modeller in the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group at the University of Sheffield. His work primarily focuses on the development of complex health economic models and their application to estimate the potential impact of alcohol policies on public health and health inequalities.

His work has played a key role in the development, introduction and evaluation of Minimum Unit Pricing in Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland as well as informing the development of low risk drinking guidelines in the UK and Australia and the recent changes to the UK alcohol duty system.

In this talk, Colin will give an overview of the evidence on the impacts that Minimum Unit Pricing has had in Scotland, discuss the potential impacts it could have in England and Northern Ireland and consider how it might have influenced changes in drinking behaviours and alcohol harms since the start of the pandemic.
