Dry January is the UK's one-month booze-free challenge. Sign up. Save money. Feel great.

Dry January is the annual movement through which millions of people give up alcohol for the month of January. It is run by the charity Alcohol Change UK.

The rules

  1. No alcohol from when you wake up on New Year's Day until 1 February.

... And that's all!

We don't sell Golden Tickets to give you a day off. If you decide to have a drink, that's totally up to you. A drier January is still something to be proud of, and your body will thank you!

But if you can make it through the month alcohol-free, you'll get bigger benefits. The biggest benefit of all is that you'll see you don't need alcohol to have fun, go out, stay in, relax or do anything else you might associate with drinking. And knowing that will help you take control of your drinking year-round.

Why do Dry January?

Taking part in Dry January is a chance to ditch the hangover, reduce the waistline, and save some serious money by giving up alcohol for 31 days. Read more about why doing Dry January is a good idea.

But does it work?

If you call the surgery telephone number outside of normal surgery hours you will hear a receorded messgage giving details about how to contact the out-of-hours service. Please remember that this is an emergency service only. Depending on your problem you will be given advice, asked to attend a local out-of-hours centre or a home visit will be arranged.

NHS Direct

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can also call NHS Direct (111) speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
