Briefings for Local Maternity Systems (July 2019)

The Smoking in Pregnancy Challenge Group has produced unique briefings for each LMS. The briefings:

  • Provide an overview of smoking prevalence and SATOD in your local area;
  • Include case studies from NHS Trusts on e-cigarettes, incentive schemes and health visiting;
  • Include updated Challenge Group resources on key policies to drive down prevalence;
  • Provide an update on the NHS Long Term Plan Implementation Framework and newly published Prevention Green Paper consultation.

We will be producing these briefings following the publication of annual SATOD data to support LMS’s to track their progress.

You can use the tabs below to view the briefing for your LMS. If you have any queries please get in touch.

LMS case studies (May 2019)

The Challenge Group has produced a new resource for Local Maternity Systems which presents three case studies from LMS’s that are working proactively and collaboratively across local areas to reduce rates of smoking in pregnancy. These case studies can serve as examples for others looking to expand their programme of work in this area. The case studies can be downloaded here.

You can view more detailed discussion of these case studies in the Challenge Group webinar below.
