Performance against expected activity for the training of front line workers in brief intervention in smoking cessation is 10.7% ahead of target (635 staff trained versus an expected activity target of 574) however training of front line staff in the Acute sector remains challenging. YTD overall figures are positive, however reduced training figures are expected for the months of July and August with an increase expected again in early autumn.
