Evaluating Hospital-Based Stop Smoking Services

Yorkshire Cancer Research commissioned the Sheffield Centre for Health and Related Research (SCHARR) at the University of Sheffield to carry out a comprehensive evaluation of hospital-based stop smoking services in the region.

The evaluation started with the QUIT programme which was implemented in eight NHS Trusts across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw in 2021 and aims to provide effective support for staff and patients to stop smoking. The evaluation commissioned by Yorkshire Cancer Research also covers the implementation of a hospital-based stop smoking service in Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, which is not part of the QUIT programme.

Through this website we aim to share information about our evaluation methods and the findings as they emerge, in the hope that healthcare providers across the UK can learn from our experiences.

About the Evaluation

The evaluation aims to assess the implementation and effectiveness of hospital-based stop smoking services.

Findings from the service evaluation will be shared here including data analyses, survey results and relevant reports. 

This area contains a growing library of reports, plans and other documents from our stop smoking service evaluations.
