Briefings for Local Maternity Systems 

The Smoking in Pregnancy Challenge Group has produced unique briefings for each LMS. The briefings provide information about the Smokefree Pregnancy Information Network; presents LMS level and regional data about smoking in pregnancy; includes contact details for local tobacco control leads; and suggests actions LMS’s can take to support Trusts to reduce rates of smoking in pregnancy. The template briefing can be downloaded here.

To request a copy of the briefing for your LMS’s please email admin@smokefreeaction.org.uk

LMS case studies

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.
