Alcohol Liaison Nurse Service

The alcohol liaison service at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides support for both staff and patients.

The service reviews practices and provides interventions with patients whose admission to hospital is alcohol-related. It offers the opportunity for acute hospital patients to be provided with a brief intervention and education on their alcohol use and, for those who need it, the opportunity to be fast-tracked to appropriate community services. It can also reduce patients’ risk of future alcohol-related admissions by discussing the reason for their admission, addressing lifestyle behaviour and choices.
