Share this

Collective Voice, the NHS Substance Misuse Provider Alliance and the Home Office are hosting a series of events around the country to engage with the sector to promote the opportunities the 2017 Drug Strategy and the refreshed Clinical Guidelines create to improve outcomes for service users and their communities. As well as hearing first hand from colleagues from the Home Office, the Department of Health and Public Health England, there will be ample opportunity for front line practitioners, commissioners and partners to feedback their thoughts and concerns.

Where will the events be held?

The events will be held in Halifax (15 November), Birmingham (17 November) and London (21 November).

What will be covered?

  • The 2017 Drug Strategy
  • The new clinical guidelines
  • Mental health and substance use
  • Drug-related deaths

Who should attend?

Providers of drug and alcohol treatment, commissioners, directors of public health, senior local authority officials, and any other key stakeholders in the drug and alcohol treatment sector.

Please note that spaces are limited and we will be ensuring a range of organisations and roles are represented.

A separate national event is planned to provide a similar opportunity for service users.

If you have any further questions, please email Alison Hill ( We look forward to seeing you there.
