Guidance and self-assessment framework for NHS mental health trusts to develop local action to reduce smoking prevalence and the use of tobacco.

The guidance for commissioners provides:
• evidence on the effects of smoking on mental health
• the benefits of smoking cessation
• case studies where providers have successfully implemented NICE guidance PH48

The self-assessment model offers a:
• free-to-access model for self-assessment that can assist in evaluating the effectiveness of action to address harm from tobacco
• suite of videos that set the scene and explain the benefits of action
• replicable workshop format that can be delivered at a local level to support local action to reduce the harm of tobacco

The self-assessment tool breaks down the NICE guidance into 4 areas (Excel spreadsheet, see PHE website):
• systems required to implement the guidance
• communication required
• training that will enable staff to successfully implement the recommendations
• treatments that should be available to support staff and service users
