■ Help stop smoking services to provide high quality behavioural support to smokers based on the most up-to-date evidence available
■ Contribute towards the professional identity and development of stop smoking practitioners and ensure that they receive due recognition for their role.
■ Research and disseminate ways of improving the provision of stop smoking support
In light of the coronavirus, the NCSCT have recommended that stop smoking services suspend providing face-to-face support until further notice.
However, it is still vitally important that we continue to provide support to clients who want to stop smoking or who are in the process of quitting.
