 Alcohol Licensing: A Guide For Public Health published by PHE

 Alcohol Licensing: A Guide For Public Health

Public Health England (PHE) has published a new resource for Public Health Authorities. Alcohol Licensing: a guide for public health has been published on the Gov.uk website at the following link.

The guidance, formally known as the Analytical Support Package (ASP), brings together nationally available data and materials with local authority information to support local authorities in accessing and using a range of databases and tools. Local teams are able to input their own data and create interactive maps and reports to help them in their existing role as a responsible authority.

Public Health England (PHE) works to support local public health teams in their role as a responsible authority, providing guidance, workshops and training. In 2016, with the support of the Home Office and Department of Health, PHE developed and piloted an analytical support package (ASP) to help public health teams in their existing role as a responsible authority as defined in the Licensing Act, and to explore the data and processes that would support a theoretical public health licensing objective.

A report, based on their findings, explores the experience of pilot areas using the ASP tool. It describes how they accessed relevant health information and how that information was presented in fulfilling their role as a responsible authority.

 Analytical Support Package Report

 This report presents the findings from the project and how the areas engaged with the package in attempting to improve public health’s engagement with alcohol licensing. The pilot areas also explored how ASP-generated data and evidence could be of use in the context of a theoretical fifth licensing objective addressing the protection of public health.
