SCS: Guidance published for NHS trusts

NHS England has published a practical guide for hospital tobacco dependence teams and hospital pharmacy teams on how to refer patients at discharge into the Smoking Cessation Service (SCS).

Local Pharmaceutical Committees working with hospital trusts, community pharmacy contractors and pharmacists who are currently or intending to provide the service, may find the guidance helpful to understand the referral process. The guidance also provides an insight into the patient experience when they access SCS.

In addition, other members of the pharmacy team may find the information helpful as it provides practical guidance that may help in the delivery of the service.
