Health Professionals

Many health care organisations and charities are working together to reduce the harm done by smoking. This work is often referred to as 'tobacco control' and includes a range of activities and initiatives intended to help smokers quit and to protect people from the danger of second-hand smoke. It also includes programmes to encourage people - particularly children and teenagers - not to take up the habit in the first place.

For more information please see the tobacco section of the NHS Health Scotland website.
