Lewisham Drinkers are Safe(r) Drinkers

Interesting to see this story in The Observer which looks at the rising numbers of people who drink so much they need hospital attention.

But not, it appears, in Lewisham:

Most of the regions with the fewest emergency admissions are in the south, including Wokingham in Berkshire and Lewisham in south London.

    Well, that’s not how it feels in Lewisham A&E on a Saturday night!

    Well I guess it must feel much worse elsewhere then!

  3. robert says:

    or maybe a great number of Lewisham drinkers never make it to the hospital!

    Maybe, but that’s going beyond the information we’ve got at our finger tips!

    I did my bit yesterday – by making sure I got drunk in Greenwich.

  6. Max says:

    I think that it may have something to do with the fact that getting plastered is a typical after work activity and as Lewisham is a dormitory borough we don’t get that kind of drinking.

    Things have changed for the better since I lived there…

    …although there is no causal relationship. I think.
