NHS Stop Smoking Services Collection

Frequency: quarterly

Background to the collection

The Stop Smoking Services Quarterly Return is a Public Health England (PHE) central return used to monitor the delivery of Stop Smoking Services (prior to 1 April 2013 this was a Department of Health (DH) return).

The return is collected from Local Authorities (LAs) by NHS Digital (formerly the HSCIC). The stop smoking collection is implemented via the Strategic Data Collection System (SDCS).

The return is made in an excel spreadsheet which is downloaded from the system in the first quarter of each year. The same spreadsheet is then used in each quarter to report throughout the year. Each quarter's return is on a separate tab within the workbook.

The form is not available to download once the Quarter one submission window has closed. Submissions in subsequent quarters should be made on the form an organisation used for their Quarter one submission.
