Alcohol Liaison Service

The Alcohol Liaison Team is based in the centre of Swindon, but available daily at the Great Western Hospital (GWH).

It helps adults (aged 18 or over) who are concerned with their alcohol intake, and gives them the opportunity to look at the way it may be affecting them.

You can have an informal discussion with an Alcohol Liaison Nurse, who can also support you during a stay in hospital, and give ongoing support after you're discharged.

If you don't have the opportunity to speak to an Alcohol Liaison Nurse and you live in Swindon, you can attend the Open for Action Service (please see below).
