Executive Summary

The strategy sets out a 5 year plan for action across the key themes of health inequalities, prevention, protection and cessation. Key actions include: setting 2034 as a target date for reducing smoking prevalence to 5%; a pilot of the schools-based ASSIST programme; a requirement for smoke-free hospital grounds by March 2015; and a national marketing campaign on the dangers of second-hand smoke in cars and other enclosed spaces. In addition, it will provide the government’s view on standardised packaging of tobacco products.
