26/01/2017: Please note that the data provided by Rutland for this report is incorrect. The correct figures for Rutland are much lower than those published. For example the number of people setting a quit date is only 55 rather than the published figure of 1,655. This also has a knock on effect for the East Midlands region (correct figure 13,039 quit attempts instead of 14,639 which is a difference of 11 per cent) and the national figure (correct figure of 144,634 instead of 146,234 which is a difference of 1 per cent). The differences for other figures in the report are likely to be of the same magnitude.
This quarterly report presents results from the monitoring of the NHS Stop Smoking Services in England during the period April 2016 to June 2016. NHS Stop Smoking Services offer support to help people quit smoking. This can include intensive support through group therapy or one-to-one support. The support is designed to be widely accessible within the local community and is provided by trained personnel, such as specialist smoking cessation advisors and trained nurses and pharmacists.
This report includes information on the number of people setting a quit date and the number who successfully quit at the 4 week follow-up. It also presents in depth analyses of the key measures of the service including pregnant women, breakdowns by ethnic group and type of pharmacotherapy received. The results are provided at national, regional and local authority levels.
