The Scottish Parliament passed legislation in 2012, known as the Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Act 2012, which allowed the introduction of a system of Minimum Unit Pricing for alcohol.
Minimum unit pricing sets a ‘floor price’ for a unit of alcohol, now 50p per unit as of 1st May 2018, meaning it can’t be sold for lower than that. The aim of the MUP legislation, according to the Scottish Government, is to reduce the effects of harmful alcohol consumption, and improve the health and wellbeing of Scotland’s population.
We are conducting a study, funded by the NIHR and led by the University of Glasgow, to measure the effect of minimum unit pricing in emergency care settings.
