Stop smoking services receive guidance

  • Comment
Stop smoking services should aim to treat at least 5% of their local population of smokers in the course of 2007–2008. This is one of the key challenges in updated guidance from the Tobacco Programme.

Stop smoking services should aim to treat at least 5% of their local population of smokers in the course of 2007–2008. This is one of the key challenges in updated guidance from the Tobacco Programme.

The guidance suggests that services need to focus on increasing access to services for manual workers and black and minority ethnic groups with high smoking rates. It also recommends that services provide repeat interventions to those who are motivated to make a quit attempt following a relapse. Stop smoking
services should also be developed for pre-operative patients and in partnership
with acute trusts.

The guidance is intended for everyone involved in managing, commissioning or delivering NHS stop smoking services.
