Stop Smoking Service

Lincolnshire County Council has commissioned North 51 (http://www.quit51.co.uk/) to provide a new-look smoking cessation service which also includes maintaining a Tobacco Control function for Lincolnshire.

The new service began on 1 January 2016.

The new service will be focused on smokers who will most benefit from stopping smoking:

  • Supporting pregnant women (and their partners) to be tobacco smoke-free for a healthy pregnancy, delivery and postnatally for the best start for the baby
  • Supporting smokers with medical conditions and surgical interventions in order to reduce the impact of smoking on disease progression and to improve post-operative recovery, and
  • Supporting people with long term mental health conditions as a contribution to improving physical health outcomes and parity of esteem.

There will still be support available to the wider population to stop smoking, though this will be offered at a lower capacity, matching the national declining trend for smokers accessing stop smoking services.
