article In a bid to reduce the number of waterborne illnesses and illnesses in the United Kingdom, UK authorities have announced plans to allow businesses to offer free drinks to customers at their outlets.

The move will see restaurants, shops, cinemas, theatres and bars offering free drinks at their premises to reduce waterborne illness, according to the Department of Health (DOH).

It is expected that by the end of this year, up to 50,000 pubs, restaurants and bars will offer free food to customers, with some offering free drink for their employees as well.

The initiative will come into effect from April 2018.

“Free drinks are an important part of the British way of life,” a statement from the Health Service Executive said.

“We will ensure that everyone gets access to safe and affordable drinks.”

The Department of Food and Drink (DFD) has previously announced that it is looking to bring in more than 2 million free drinks in the next three years, with the aim of boosting the number in use by around one million people per year. 

A DFD spokesman said: “We are working with businesses to help them to provide customers with safe, affordable, high-quality food and drink.

We will be working closely with the health and safety service to support the rollout of these initiatives, as well as to ensure the best possible experience for customers and staff.”

What are the possible risks?

The government has set out a number of possible risks for the public that can come from offering free food or drinks to anyone at the premises. 

“The risk of food poisoning can be particularly dangerous in situations where there are multiple patrons sharing a meal, such as when people are sharing a table at a restaurant,” the statement added.

“People are more likely to be exposed to food-borne illness if they eat a large number of food products or drink more than one drink in a short period of time.”

What is the ‘possible risk’ for people who do not have an eating disorder?

Food poisoning can also be a potential risk for people with a eating disorder, although it is unlikely to be present for people without one.

The NHS recommends people with an eating problem eat at least once a week and drink no more than two glasses of water. 

Why is the NHS taking part?

The NHS has been taking part in a consultation process with restaurants, cafes and bars in an attempt to establish whether they can offer free drink to people who want to drink them at their establishment.

The consultation is part of a wider consultation on offering free meals at establishments in England, which will continue for the coming months. 

What is an ‘insurance policy’?

The policy aims to help businesses, particularly restaurants, bars and pubs, to offer the most effective, cost-effective, and convenient food and drinks.

The policy will also help the health service understand how to help those who need it most.

“As the government continues to invest in public health, it is important that we understand how we can best provide our citizens with safe and convenient options for free, safe and effective food and refreshments,” a spokesperson for the Department for Health said.

“We want to work with the businesses who want this to happen so that we can continue to help people in need.”

What does the policy mean for businesses?

Businesses will need to make sure they comply with the new scheme, which has not yet been announced by the government. 

If you would like to help the Department, visit their website at https://www.healthcare.gov.uk/health/insurance-policy and submit a claim to help with the scheme. 

Do I need an insurance policy to drink at my establishment?

The new scheme will be able to cover anyone who drinks free, with a valid food and beverage purchase receipt.

However, the NHS has said that the scheme will only cover the full cost of the food and beverages for people under the age of 18. 

Can I have my own insurance policy?

If you are planning to take part in the scheme, you will need an annual insurance policy from your employer.

This policy will cover the whole cost of your establishment, including the cost of any free food and other beverages that are offered. 

Are there any restrictions?

If the government is keen to introduce this scheme, it may require businesses to take certain steps to ensure their customers are safe.

This is because the government may require the provision of specialised equipment and/or the use of a specific food and/ or drink at your establishment. 

Is it safe for everyone to drink free of charge at my business?

The health service has set up a website that outlines the measures that it would take to help reduce the incidence of food-related illness in the UK.
