NHS is ignoring smoking at great cost, says Royal College of Physicians

BMJ 2018; 361 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.k2769 (Published 25 June 2018) Cite this as: BMJ 2018;361:k2769

OPEN LETTER TO SIMON STEVENS to ensure that tobacco dependence treatment is provided for every smoker cared for by the NHS, as part of the long-term plan.

OPEN LETTER TO SIMON STEVENS to ensure that tobacco dependence treatment is provided for every smoker cared for by the NHS, as part of the long-term plan.

The Government’s ambition for a five year improvement in disability free life expectancy by 2035 [1] is one we can all share, but if it is to be achieved the NHS has to ensure that tobacco dependence treatment is provided for every smoker cared for by the NHS.

Smoking is the leading cause of years of life lost in the UK, [2] responsible for half the difference in life expectancy between richest and poorest [3]. Smokers lose on average 10 years of life [4], and for every death caused by smoking, it is estimated that another twenty people are suffering from serious illnesses attributable to smoking [5]. Smoking can also end life before it has even begun, with maternal smoking one of the leading modifiable risks for infant mortality in the UK [6].

Treatment for tobacco dependency is one of the most cost-effective healthcare interventions, with the potential to produce substantial in year savings by reducing demand on the NHS. [7] For example, smokers are five times more likely to get influenza, a major contributor to winter pressures, [7] and babies of mothers who smoke are more likely to be born prematurely, and to require emergency or sustained healthcare. [6] Stopping smoking improves life expectancy and quality of life for every patient, from cancer to cardiovascular and respiratory disease, through maternity to mental health, yet tobacco dependence treatment is not offered as a matter of course to all smokers accessing healthcare.

Health Ministers have made clear their support for the RCP proposals [8] [9]. NHS England must now ensure that treatment for tobacco dependence is integral to the long-term plan. This is vital not just for the health and wellbeing of individual smokers and their families, but also for the sustainability of the NHS and the wider social care system.
