    New Report: Providing Smoking Cessation For Patients in Hospital Will Save Lives and Money

    A major new report has been released by the Royal College of Physicians calls for a radical change in the way the NHS treats smoking, by providing opt-out cessation services as a routine component of all hospital care. Dr Duncan Gillespie from HEDS was the lead on chapter 3 of the report which looked at how much current smoking is likely to cost the NHS in England through hospital admissions.

    Dr Gillespie said: "The report is very important because it shows how the NHS might do more to help people stop smoking and we have shown what the potential economic payoffs might be."
