09:05 Scottish model on alcohol services and policy
Dr Peter Rice - Scottish alcohol expert.
The Scottish parliament is currently considering a range of recommendations made by Dr Rice on the issue of alcohol including minimum pricing - excise tax, and early intervention by GPS.
Dr Rice is one of Scotland's leading medical voices on alcohol and has played a key role in influencing the Scottish Government on the twin areas of alcohol services and effective alcohol policy.
He currently works as consultant psychiatrist with NHS Tayside Alcohol Problems Service and has pioneered a service based on a population model. Tayside was the first area in Scotland to develop a Primary Care liaison service with an established programme of screening and brief interventions with 95% GP participation. The service developed by Dr Rice is seen as the 'gold standard' in Scotland.
