Focused work is needed to investigate this. For example, data on community-based services for the same period show a decline in patient contact. This could suggest that reductions in the support that would keep patients out of acute crisis and reduce hospital admissions are a factor in the rising numbers of detentions. It may also be that rising detention rates are related to repeated admissions of the same patient on a rapid cycle, or that the threshold for accessing one of the reduced number of beds is now that a patient meets the criteria for detention under the MHA.” Source: Monitoring The Mental Health Act In 2015/16 (CQC, 2017)

This is 6% more than 2014/15 and 11% higher than 2005/06. The North West had the highest rate of admissions per 100,000 population for both males and females at 38 and 13 respectively. The South West had the lowest rate for males at 15 while East of England was the lowest for females at 6.

This is 9% more than 2014/15 and over double the level in 2005/06 – though the increase from 2005/06 will be partly due to improvements in recording of secondary diagnoses. The North West had the highest rate of admissions per 100,000 population for both males and females at 326 and 141 respectively. The South East had the lowest rates at 139 for males and 61 for females. Source: Statistics on Drugs Misuse: England, 2017 (NHS Digital, 2017)

  7. 7. How total duty (and duty per unit change by ABV, comparing 1 pint of beer to 1 pint of cider £0.00 £0.20 £0.40 £0.60 £0.80 £1.00 £1.20 3.5% ABV 5% ABV 7.5% ABV 7.6% ABV Total duty - 1 pint beer Duty per unit - 1 pint beer Total duty - 1 pint cider Duty per unit - 1 pint cider “So the total duty paid on beer increases with strength and leaps up for products above 7.5% ABV. For cider, the total duty is lower to begin with, does not increase with strength and, crucially, the duty per unit goes down as the strength goes up. In other words, cider producers suffer no financial penalty for increasing the strength of their product to attract those motivated to maximise their alcohol intake.” Source: Cheap cider and an alcohol duty system that incentivises harmful practice, APE: ALCOHOL POLICY AND EPIDEMIOLOGY (2017)

This suggests that the variation observed in rates of on-trade sales by local authority may be more influenced by non-resident consumption than by differences in drinking patterns by the resident population. Furthermore, this suggests that on-trade sales may be a less useful local public health measure since higher levels will be associated with alcohol consumption by the non-resident population.
