This quarterly report presents provisional results from the monitoring of the NHS Stop Smoking Services (NHS SSS) in England during the period 1 April 2010 to 31 December 2010. This report includes information on the number of people setting a quit date and the number who successfully quit at the four-week follow-up. It also presents in-depth analyses of the key measures of the service including pregnant women, breakdowns by ethnic groups and type of pharmacotherapy received and regional analyses at Strategic Health Authority (SHA) and Primary Care Trust (PCT) levels.
Quarterly results from the monitoring of NHS SSS for 2010/11 are provisional and will subsequently be revised to account for any revisions submitted by PCTs throughout the year. At this stage, any comparisons between 2010/11 and earlier years compare provisional figures with final figures. Final figures for 2010/11 will be included in the end-of-year report, expected to be published in August 2011.
