A documentary being shown on ITV tonight will expose the extent of middle-class alcoholism in Britain, which medics fear could cripple the nation with long term health problems. We asked you on our Facebook page just how much of a problem it really is:

"I drink most days because I enjoy a drink. If people have a problem then there's plenty of places they can go to get help. Each to their own I say."
– Stuart Rouse

– Zoe Boswell
"I hardly ever drink at all now. Maybe a glass of wine once in a blue moon.
"I drink more in the summer, sitting in the garden with a nice cold beer is nice.
"As long as you don't get all stupid and drunk in front of children then what you do in your own home is your business, as long as your not hurting anybody."

Any figures quoted in the media about the number of patients who may have been affected are purely speculative.
We are determined to get to the bottom of all of the concerns and issues raised in the CQC report and we are already working closely with professional regulators, local GPs, North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS England and Essex police to do so.
If there is any evidence that any of our staff have inappropriately adjusted and reported cancer figures, the Trust will take strong action in all cases...
Our priority is the safety and welfare of all cancer patients.
