South East Clinical Senates

Independent, clinical and strategic advice for health systems in the south east

A review of the smoking cessation services in secondary care

Continuing to reduce the smoking prevalence rate is a priority for the STPs in the Thames Valley. The Senate led a piece of work to review smoking cessation services in secondary care utilising the British Thoracic Society audit to create a Thames Valley baseline. The audit evidenced a higher smoking prevalence for hospital patients than the general population and also missed opportunities. The Senate report sets out recommendations for increasing smoking interventions in secondary care.
