The NHS Statement of Support for Tobacco Control has been developed to enable the health community to support colleagues in local government in their tobacco control work

It has been developed alongside the Local Government Declaration on Tobacco Control.

The Statement provides a public commitment to work towards further reducing smoking prevalence; to demonstrate a commitment to take action; and to publicise the NHS’s dedication to protect local communities from the harm caused by smoking. It also reinforces the signatory’s commitment to protect tobacco control work from the vested interests of the tobacco industry.
