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 each reporting quarter.

The submission spreadsheet contains one tab to collect the data for the submission quarter. A new spreadsheet should be downloaded and populated for each quarter.
