Smoking cessation services are a key part of the Government’s tobacco control strategy which is outlined in the recently published tobacco control plan. Councils will receive £16 billion of public health funding between 2016 and 2021 to provide vital services for their local population including smoking cessation services. Funding plans beyond 2021 will be the subject of a new Spending Review.
