As 5% of local authorities (LAs) did not provide a full dataset for 2013-14, a national full year figure was not produced. The total spend for the year which excludes the 5% of LAs is £79.7 million. This total is not directly comparable with previous years’ spend.

Data for those LAs which made a return can be found on tab 4.7 “People successfully quit, total expenditure and cost per quitter, by Region, Strategic Health Authority and Primary Care Trust, April 2012 to March 2013” of the data sheet “Statistics on NHS Stop Smoking Services, England - April 2013 to March 2014” which can be accessed here:

All published data for stop smoking services is available from the Health and Social Care Information Centre website:
