The Evaluation of the impact of minimum unit pricing (MUP) will consider the impact of MUP on a range of outcomes. The evaluation protocol describes plans for the NHS Health Scotland evaluation of minimum unit pricing for alcohol in Scotland.

The purpose is to provide the reader with a broader understanding of the approach to the evaluation, the studies within it and when they will report, and the governance processes in place.

It covers both the studies funded through and managed by NHS Health Scotland, through the Monitoring and Evaluating Scotland’s Alcohol Strategy (MESAS) programme, and the studies funded separately, led by various academic institutions.

Further publications will be added in due course as appropriate.
