Public Health England’s (PHE’s) ‘One You’ adult health campaign raises awareness of the health risks associated with excessive alcohol consumption, including cancers. ‘One You’ provides information, advice and online tools to help people drink less, including the ‘How Are You’ health quiz, website, email programme and the Drinks Tracker app.

In addition, PHE’s ‘Be Clear on Cancer’ campaigns include a leaflet for public distribution through general practice surgeries, outreach events and partner organisations. The leaflets include advice on how to reduce the risk of cancer such as drinking less alcohol.
