A one-stop hub of resources to help healthcare professionals support pregnant women in Lincolnshire to give up smoking is being created.

Methods to encourage expectant smokers to quit their habit are being identified and new ones will be developed where gaps exist. They will be pooled together as part of a training module and a manual for smoking cessation specialists who work with pregnant women, with a view to becoming integrated into standard NHS training programmes.

The project is being funded by NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care, an organisation which turns research into cost-saving and high-quality care through innovation.
