Description:

Reducing the prevalence of smoking among people in routine and manual groups, some minority ethnic groups and disadvantaged communities will help reduce health inequalities more than any other measure to improve the public's health. Although NHS Stop Smoking Services have helped large numbers of people to quit smoking, smoking cessation rates are still lower among people in routine and manual groups compared with those in higher socioeconomic groups. In particular, pregnant women in routine and manual groups and those aged 20 or under may need additional support to give up smoking.
