Cutting down: the reality of budget cuts to local tobacco control: a survey of tobacco control leads in local authorities in England | Cancer Research UK | Action on Smoking and Health
This report, carried out by Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) and Cancer Research UK, outlines the results of a survey of tobacco control leads in local authorities in England.
The report finds that smoking cessation services are facing ongoing budget cuts, with 59 per cent of respondents reporting that they were forced to reduce their funding to services in the past year. The report calls on public and local councillors to help protect smoking cessation services by urging the government to solve the public health funding crisis.
