PUBLIC health professionals at Tameside Council are encouraging local people to take part in Greater Manchester’s Big Alcohol Conversation before the survey closes on February 28.

The online survey will help give as many people as possible the chance to join in the conversation, to help reveal the full truth about alcohol in Greater Manchester.

Dr Jeanelle de Gruchy, Tameside MBC’s director of population health, said “We’re asking people to spare a few minutes to complete the survey. It would be really helpful to understand what you think about alcohol and how it can give rise to problems – and what we in Tameside could do about it when it does.”

The survey is anonymous and takes about five minutes to answer the questions, although people who take part have the opportunity to expand on their views if they want to.The survey can be found at:
