Fewer drunks presenting to RAH ED since late night alcohol crackdown

27 January 2014

The number of early morning alcohol related presentations to the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) has sunk by almost a third since the introduction of a new package of alcohol reforms last year.

There were 108 alcohol related presentations to the RAH between midnight and 6:59am during October and December 2013, compared to 152 over the same period in 2012 - a drop of 29%.
