Smoking Cessation Services: Early Experiences from Health Action Zones

By Catherine Adams, Linda Bauld and Ken F. Judge

Abstract

<p>The December 1998 White Paper, Smoking Kills, put forward a wide range of measures on smoking and health. A central<p><p>component of the reforms is the provision of new monies to develop smoking cessation services across the country. In the<p><p>first year of implementation, the new resources have been limited to health authorities within Health Action Zones, as part<p><p>of the government's strategy to target disadvantaged communities where smoking prevalence is particularly high. Along<p><p>with introducing a monitoring system for the new services in HAZs, the Department of Health has commissioned a one year<p><p>study which aims to look at a range of strategic issues relating to service development. This report presents findings from<p><p>the first five months of this study. \ud \ud <p><p><p>Report submitted to the Department of Health, February 2000\ud \u
