Plans to advise people not to drink two days in a row are unlikely to stop excessive drinking, a GP has said.
Public Health England are considering telling Britons that they should avoid drinking alcohol on consecutive days to reduce health risks.
"Giving up alcohol on alternate days is not something most doctors would recognise as a helpful strategy to curb excessive drinking," GP Martin Scurr told the Daily Mail.
"It's hard to see how this plan from Public Health England will persuade excessive drinkers to rein back."
