UK Health Forum’s response to the Office for National Statistics: alcohol mortality definition review
Funded by
Date13 September 2017
Year 2017
The UK Health Forum (UKHF) fully supports the detailed response to this consultation by the Alcohol Health Alliance and we have answered those questions which align with our areas of interest and expertise. 
In summary we propose; a definition which allows comparison across the four nations of the UK and preferably, internationally; a consensus is drawn on common and comparable wider measures of mortality 
definitions; inclusion of conditions such as fibrosis and cirrhosis of the liver so as to avoid a misleading reduction in the number of recorded deaths and adoption of the forthcoming International Classification of Disease -11th Revision (ICD-11) standards in order to facilitate international comparisons.
