Four regional events were held in Bristol, Newcastle, Liverpool and London during the Governments consultation on what action should be taken in response to the rising levels of alcohol health harm and crime and disorder.
To be invited each organisation had to meet one of the following criteriathat they represented either diverse groups, enforcement and local authorities, the national health service, other health providers, manufacturers of alcohol, those in the alcohol off-licensed trade or those in the alcohol on-licensed trade.
In total 2,592 organisations were invited to these regional events and the following table breaks down this figure for each event and into the number invited, the number that accepted and the number that attended.

However, in 2006 approximately £729 million was spent on cancer drugs. Around £4.35 billion is spent annually on cancer services. Approximately 27 per cent. of this is spent on in-patient costs (excluding those costs related to surgery).
