Neil Martin, Research and Information Manager for Balance, the North East Alcohol Office, presented research looking at the impact of inequalities on the healthcare system based on alcohol-specific hospital admissions from 2006 - 2015 covering 326 local authorities in England. Data showed an increase in such admissions, broken down into condition, gender and geographic region and Martin discussed their impact on NHS resources and life expectancy.
