Based on 2015/16 data for both Hackney and City of London (where gender has been recorded), males account for two thirds (66%) of alcohol-related attendances reported by the London Ambulance Service.  The data also show that, where age has been recorded, just under a quarter of these attendances are for people under 25 years (22%), while 25-34 year olds make up almost 30%.

Table 5 shows that, in 2015/16, almost one fifth (19%) of all alcohol-related incidents recorded by the London Ambulance Service were in the Hoxton East and Shoreditch ward. This area contains just over a fifth (23%) of all licensed premises allowed to sell alcohol in Hackney.
