Deliverers of the service can be pharmacists or other accredited members of pharmacy staff. Pharmacists or staff will need to attend two days of training provided by Coventry Stop Smoking (Healthy Lifestyles) service of Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership Trust. Since 2010, the NCSCT piloted their training scheme which is made up of online modules and face to face skills training. All subcontractors will be required to undertake and pass Level 1 and Level 2 assessments in order to deliver stop smoking services. Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership Trust Stop Smoking (Healthy Lifestyles) service will support and assist those deliverers within the pharmacy to complete and achieve this accredited training.


Deliverers of the service must have a valid Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check with their place of work.
