There was a positive response to updating the relative risks used for the calculation of smoking-related harm and all options provided through responses have been explored.

Initially, we will use the relative risks listed in the Royal College of Physician (RCP) Report, ‘Hiding in Plain Sight’, as proposed in the consultation document, to produce new indicators, including a back-series from the period 2013 to 2015 (pooled) to the present.

Public Health England (PHE) will include mental health conditions as set out in the RCP report but also continue to work with colleagues on improving data sources on mental health and exploring new information on the relative risk of mental health conditions among smokers.
