Alcohol abuse is a growing problem in the UK, the cost being estimated at around £22bn. In order to combat this problem Health Boards and Trusts have been charged with screening and delivering Brief Interventions (a short advice session) to those sections of the population who are most at risk, ie young adults. The rationale being that, if enough BIs are delivered the binge drinking cuture will begin to change and the cost of alcohol abuse decline.

The group chosen to deliver these interventions have tended to be GPs and Practice Nurses. However there is a fundamental flaw in the fact that young adults seldom attend their GPs and even less seldom view their alcohol use as a problem. Thus it is unlikely that the Health Boards/Trusts will reach their targets or affect drinking culture. A second problem is a lack of data to assess the scale and nature of the problem and to better plan services, ie the type and distribution for greatest effectiveness.

Working with the largest health board in the UK, we have produced an online facility to screen drinkers and deliver the appropriate interventions and referral. This facility also collects data on demographics, drinking, harm and motivation and confidence about changing. We would now like to make this facility available to other Health Boards/Trusts.

We are looking for a sales person, or sales persons, who have experience of selling services to the NHS. You would need to be able to identify and access the relevant decision makers and present our service. There are very strong arguments, strategically, pragmatically and financially, for using this service and we would provide you with all the information you require.

The service is offered at £10,000 with commission at 10%.
