NICE Talks to help people quit smoking

NICE Talks to help people quit smoking

Publication date: Wednesday, 10 October 2018

A regular podcast from NICE focuses on quitting smoking in its latest episode. The latest podcast in the ‘NICE Talks’ series features Martin Dockrell who is the Tobacco Control Programme Lead from Public Health England and who has been part of the team developing NICE guidance on smoking prevention.

Topics covered in the 13-minute podcast include the best interventions to help people quit smoking and the truth about e-cigarettes. There are also brief stories from two people who have been able to quit smoking successfully.

Although smoking prevalence in the UK has recently gone below 15% there is still much to be done to support those among the 6 million smokers in the country that want to quit.
