    Drinking alcohol was the main reason for 358,000 admissions to hospital in 2018/19 according to new figures published yesterday by NHS Digital.

    The number of admissions is 6% higher than 2017/18 and 19% higher than a decade ago, according to the Statistics on Alcohol, England 2020.

    Alcohol-related admissions accounted for 2% of overall hospital admissions, which is the same rate as 2017/18.

    Men accounted for 62% of alcohol admissions, while 40% of patients were aged between 45 and 64.

    These figures are based on the narrow measure where an alcohol-related disease, injury or condition was the primary reason for a hospital admission or there was an alcohol-related external cause.

    A broader measure that looks at a range of other conditions that could be caused by alcohol shows 1.3 million admissions in 2018/19, this is an 8% increase on 2017/18 and represents 7% of all hospital admissions.

    This report also presents a range of information on alcohol use and misuse by adults and children drawn together from a variety of sources.

    Other figures included in the report show:

    There were 5,698 deaths specifically attributed to alcohol in 2018, this is 2% fewer than in 2017

    77% of alcohol related deaths happened in people aged 40 to 69
    38% of men and 19% of women aged 55 to 64 usually drank over 14 units of alcohol in a week

    The average household spent £8.70 per week on alcohol in 2017/184
    People aged 65 to 74 had the highest average weekly alcohol spend of £10.60 a week

    This report contains newly published data from the Public Health England Local Alcohol Profiles for England, which uses data from NHS Digital’s Hospital Episode Statistics.
