Outline of Proposal

To review and reduce the overall expenditure on drugs and alcohol services and commissioning as part of the overall efficiency and investment strategy for the Public Health grant.

General Impact

The proposed reductions will impact on most existing current external and internal providers of drugs and alcohol services with budget reductions. The proposals will also impact on commissioning, intelligence and strategy development functions.

Impact on Service Users

The proposal may impact on the capacity of some services to provide the current level of service and this will be assessed during the consultation period in order to minimise the risk. Some elements are a change of model and the impact on service users is minimal.
