The number of women presenting at emergency departments with alcohol-related injuries is increasing at an alarming rate, a new national study has found.
 
Between 2005 and 2012 the number of women who arrived at hospital with these kind of injuries increased by 44 per cent compared to 30 percent for men.
 
The sharpest rise in these presentations was in girls aged 15 to 19, which increased by more than 60 per cent from 4.6 per 1000 presentations to 7.5 per 1000.
