Smoking cessation campaign launched by DH

27th January 2009

The NHS has launched a campaign which targets GPs and aims to stop people from smoking.

The campaign wants GPs to try "30-second interventions" where they communicate with patients using the "three As - ask, advice and act". The Department of Health has said research shows that this is the "single most cost effective and clinically proven action that a healthcare professional can undertake."
