Helping Smokers Quit (proactive work)

In August 2014 the London Clinical Senate launched the “Helping Smokers Quit” programme to support whole-system behaviour change, with the goal that every London clinical knows the smoking status of each patient they care and supports them to quit. It focused on clinical action, and the health system support required to improve the interaction between a clinician and their patient. The CO4 programme focussed on: enhancing Conversations, routine CO monitoring, accurate COding, and COmissioning the right services. The programme has been highlighted as evidence of best practice by Public Health England and nationally through the CQUIN programme.
