Smoking Cessation

This LCS supports general practices in Islington by funding the provision of specialist smoking cessation support, to improve the management of patients seeking support to stop smoking. 

This LCS aligns with national ambitions to provide the most effective and cost effective evidence-based support to smokers, to help them to quit. 

Positive outcomes from specialist smoking cessation provision are:

  • Reduce smoking prevalence and smoking-related health inequalities.
  • Contribute to the prevention and management of long-term conditions, extending both the length and quality of life.
  • Improve health outcomes for pregnant women.
  • Improve the use and effectiveness of pharmacotherapy in smoking cessation to achieve better outcomes for smokers.
