Check your alcohol consumption

Drinking causes harm

Did you know that drinking causes harm you can't see and contributes to around 60 medical conditions including cancer, high blood pressure and stroke?

Public health experts estimate that about 27,000 people in the borough are in the 'increasing risk' category for alcohol-related harm due to the amount they consume. Kingston ambulance staff were called out to more than 1,200 alcohol-related incidents in 2011-12.

Measure how much you drink and get help if needed 

Our e-drink-check website is designed to help you measure your intake, provide information about safe and responsible levels of alcohol consumption, and direct you to local services.

The website includes a confidential and anonymous questionnaire to assess levels of drinking and any risks to health.
