The National Centre for Smoking Cessation and Training (NCSCT) provides a range of training, assessment and certification for NHS stop smoking service providers. This NCSCT training will provide you with a good understanding of the factors involved in smoking and smoking cessation, and will link this theoretical understanding to professional practice. It has been developed for experienced professionals working for NHS Stop Smoking Services who want to update or improve their knowledge and skills - as well as newcomers to the profession.

The STP for the NHS Community Pharmacy Smoking Cessation Service is designed for you to follow closely (do what it says you should do, say what it suggests that you should say) so that you can deliver effective and evidence-based behaviour change techniques to give your patients the best chance of quitting.
