Our focus will now increasingly shift to driving, monitoring and evaluating the implementation of these policies, in collaboration with other Government Departments and cross-sectoral stakeholders. This will include initiatives in local authorities, workplaces, educational facilities and communities. Work will continue on developing further measures to limit the harm from alcohol, and to strengthen our tobacco control measures. In addition, a health and wellbeing approach will inform and support the development of new strategies in areas such as Drugs and Mental Health.
