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.
