ProACTIVE Research Programme 

Alcohol-related hospital admissions in England continue to rise, with estimates that 10% of patients admitted to acute hospitals may be alcohol dependent. There remains considerable variation in provision of hospital-based Alcohol Care Teams (ACTs) in England, and a limited evidence base for understanding their clinical effectiveness. The NHS long-term plan has invested £26million to ‘optimise’ ACT through the development of existing services and the establishment of new teams in 25% of hospitals in greatest need by 2024. Jointly led by Professor Julia Sinclair, University of Southampton and Professor Thomas Phillips, University of Hull, this three-year research programme is a multi-disciplinary, integrated, mixed-methods study designed to evaluate the impact of ACTs.   

The development of an ACT Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) Network to co-produce evidence and tools with patients, policy makers and commissioners about the best use of NHS funds in this area is central to the whole research programme.  

The post is available from beginning of October 2022.
