a smoking cessation consultation cbSeptember 25 2017

A document describing various different models for delivering stop smoking services has been published by Public Health England.

 The document “supports directors of public health and local healthcare commissioners in rapidly appraising the evidence, to enable informed decisions on the provision of local stop smoking support.”

Pharmacy interventions are described, along with other stop smoking services and evidence-based interventions. The document also looks at models of service delivery and provides additional good practice for commissioning.

It is part of a group of PHE tools to help local decision makers in relation to tobacco control. Other products include:

  • local tobacco control profiles
  • Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) support packs
  • CLeaR self-assessments
