Draft Tobacco Control Strategy Have Your Say

Draft Tobacco Control Strategy Have Your Say

Nottingham published its first tobacco control strategy in 2009 and since that time the percentage of adults living in the City who smoke has reduced from 37% to 28%. This success has been achieved by colleagues working in partnership to achieve our shared vision of inspiring a smokefree generation.

Smoking is our biggest health inequality and is responsible for half of the difference in life expectancy between our least and most well off communities. Tobacco undermines the health of Nottingham's citizens in every possible sense. It has a direct impact on the health of people who use it and on those who are exposed to second hand smoke. The majority of smokers start before the age of 18 and are not fully aware of the harm it causes or how addictive it is.

This draft strategy provides an integrated approach to tobacco control and success is reliant upon the engagement and commitment of all stakeholders including the City Council, the NHS, the voluntary and community and business sectors. It sets out a clear vision to reduce the harm that tobacco use inflicts on our citizens and communities and it is this vision that forms the foundation for our revised Strategy. The strategy does not contain detailed lists of all the tobacco control activity that will be taking place across our City, but rather seeks to add value to existing activity through guiding, sharing and evaluating our work in addition to developing new activity.
