NHS Stop Smoking Services were first set up in 1999/2000 with the aim of reducing health inequalities and improving health among local populations.
Services were rolled out across England from 2000/01 and provide free, tailored support to all smokers wishing to stop by offering a combination of recommended stop smoking pharmacotherapies and behavioural support.
This report presents statistics from Stop Smoking Services in England for the period April 2018 to March 2019 and is supplemented by excel tables, data files, technical appendices and data quality information.
It supersedes the provisional results previously published for quarters 1, 2 and 3 in 2018/19.
Information is presented at national, regional and local authority (LA) level including some time series data for the last 10 years. Information is also shown by age, gender and ethnicity.
A number of LAs submitted incomplete data. More information is available in table 5.3 of the accompanying Statistics on NHS Stop Smoking Services April 2018 to March 2019 tables.
No estimation has been made for missing data and therefore national and regional totals which appear in this report will be underestimates.
