Drugs, alcohol and smoking

As part of your health assessment we will ask you whether you smoke, use drugs or drink alcohol.

We ask these questions so we can identify if your health is at risk of any health issues and, if needed, signpost you to other services who can support you reduce your use or stop using altogether.

We may also ask you to complete a short questionnaire about your drug or alcohol use. You don’t have to fill this in if you don’t want to, but it helps us to see if the use of any of these substances is affecting your life and your wellbeing.
