A&E’s are being shocked by the numbers of under 18 year olds that are being admitted to hospital with alcohol related problems. Last year almost 7000 underage children were taken to A&E for these reasons with a horrifying 293 of them being below the age of 11.
The numbers were obtained by a Freedom of Information request put forward by Radio 5 Live. They showed that the highest number of admissions were in hospitals from Scotland and South Wales. The awful report shows that more girls are now being brought into A and E for drink related problems than boys.
