Amid concerns over Public Health England’s (PHE) plans to engage with the alcohol industry and its recently launched collaboration with Drinkaware, a charity funded primarily by the alcohol industry, the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group coordinated an open letter to PHE’s Chief Executive, Duncan Selbie.

The letter is signed by 332 UK-based public health academics and argues that:“Such partnerships threaten the reputation of PHE. They also put at risk our confidence in PHE’s commitment to the highest scientific standards and the promotion of policy advice informed by the best available evidence.”
