Smoking Cessation Services

The NHS Stop Smoking Services in England and Wales were established in 2000. People attending these services are encouraged to use pharmacological aids to increase their chances of successfully quitting. An evaluation of the effectiveness of the services found four-week validated quit rates of 53% and 15% at one year. By comparison the 12-month quit rate among people who attempt to quit unaided is estimated to be about 4%.

The NCSCT has a register of certified stop-smoking practitioners.
