Modelling the impact of minimum unit price for alcohol in Wales

ImageA new project “Modelling the impact of the introduction of a minimum unit price for alcohol in Wales” has started in March 2014. The project is commissioned by the Welsh Government and has been awarded to the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) at the University of Sheffield. The ScHARR research team includes Yang Meng (principal investigator), Lucy Gell, Susannah Sadler, Alan Brennan, John Holmes and Petra Meier. The aim of the study is to apply the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model to appraise the likely impact of minimum unit pricing for alcohol on the alcohol consumption, spending, and on the levels of alcohol-related harms in terms of health, crime and absenteeism in Wales.
