Attached Staff

Alcohol Health Care Worker

St Ann’s offers support for people who need help with their alcohol intake. We offer a weekly dedicated clinic run by an Alcohol Health Care Worker, Jim Fletcher. Patients can refer themselves directly if they wish, or they may be referred to the clinic by their GP.

If you need help with alcohol and would like to attend this clinic, simply ring the practice or ask a person at reception to book you in to the clinic. Jim is happy to see patients who are social drinkers, dependent drinkers, binge drinkers and ex-drinkers.


Not sure if you are drinking too much?

Men and women are advised not to drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week. This is the same as 6 pints of average strength beer a week.

Regularly drinking more than this can increase the risk to your health.
