Party People celebrate safely this festive season

Every year the London Ambulance Service are called to help more and more people who have become unwell through drinking too much, especially in December.

Last December the number of alcohol related emergency calls taken was up by 6,194, an increase of 5.2 per cent from the year before.

If you’re out celebrating this year the London Ambulance Service are encouraging you to look after your friends and colleagues and to plan how you are getting home in advance. They’re also advising party-goers to eat before going out or to consider booking a party that serves food, as well as sticking to safer drinking levels.
