Communicating the UK Chief Medical Officers’ low risk drinking guidelines
In 2016, the UK Chief Medical Officers revised the recommended drinking guidelines. The UK Department of Health (DoH) has worked closely with industry to produce a document outlining how it would like to see these guidelines communicated on alcohol packaging and containers. The report, Communicating the UK Chief Medical Officers’ low risk drinking guidelines, was published on 24 March. It outlines ‘the core elements of the guidelines that the DoH would wish to see communicated to the public’. It details how each of the key detailed full guideline messages are suggested to appear in concise form.
