In November 2016 Duncan Selbie wrote to all NHS Trusts urging them to take steps to become smoke-free to improve the health of their patients and staff. NICE guidance (PH48) sets out recommendations for access to evidence-based quitting support for all patients who smoke accompanied by smokefree NHS buildings and grounds. To support Trusts on their smoke-free journey PHE North West Centre is organising a workshop to provide practical advice on how to go smoke-free including the self-assessment tool to support PH48, and also prepare for the CQUIN on preventing ill health by risky behaviours.

This event is FREE and for anyone in North West responsible for implementing or supporting implementation of smokefree policy within NHS acute Trusts.

If you are interested in attending the event or would like further information please email: Sonia.Osadolor@phe.gov.uk
