Abstract

This specification reinforces the need for an equitable, consistent and person-centred smoking cessation service to be delivered to all prisoners who want to stop smoking.

The prison setting offers the opportunity to engage with hard-to-reach smokers and presents a location and time for smokers to access smoking cessation support. This can result in a sense of positive achievement of a goal, and improved health outcomes for the prisoner, their families and the wider community
