This briefing sets out key outcomes for tackling smoking and delivering on the prevention agenda for inclusion in ICB Joint Forward Plans (JFP). The briefing sets out:

  • recommended measures for the JFP
  • activity that will allow ICBs to deliver on these measures.

ASH and Cancer Research UK recently surveyed ICBs and reviewed ICP plans. They found a mixed picture in terms of activity and commitment to action on smoking which does not match the level of impact that smoking has on the healthcare system and beyond.
