Tobacco Control Strategy
It is clear that the work carried out to date nationally, regionally and locally has helped to significantly reduce the number of people who smoke in our borough. However, to meet the ambition of a smoke free generation by 2030 more is required.
By focussing our efforts on preventing the uptake of smoking in young people, and prioritising those people most at risk we can continue to reduce the prevalence of smoking and reduce inequalities. This can only be achieved through partnership working across the health and social care network and by engaging and developing seamless pathways of support for our residents.
