ANYONE who has recent experience of NHS alcohol services in East Devon is being invited to share their views.

Feedback is expected to be used to decide on the alcohol services to be provided next year.

An alcohol strategy group has been set up by Devon's Local Involvement network (LINk), an independent initiative supported by the Department of Health. It will submit residents' views to commissioners on health and care services across the country.

LINk Devon is keen to hear from anyone who has sought advice or accessed services for alcohol misuse issues, either for themselves or on someone else's behalf - whether it was through their GP, at a hospital, or through agencies such as Addaction and ENDAS (Exeter, East and Mid Devon Substance Misuse Team) and other services including charities.

For more information, visit or call Caroline Lee on (01404) 549045.
