Abstract:

The requirement

Islington Council wants to procure a service to support residents of Camden and Islington to successfully stop smoking.

The broad aims of the Camden and Islington Community Stop Smoking Service will be to:

• offer a range of support options to smokers who want to quit, tailored to their needs and preferences.

• ensure all smokers who want to stop smoking can access appropriate information, advice and stop smoking medications.

• provide services that are accessible to all groups of the population who may benefit from them, with a specific focus on priority groups.

The high-quality service will work with smokers aged 12 or older, who live, work, study or are registered with a GP in the London Boroughs of Camden or Islington. It will take referrals from a diverse range of sources across both Camden and Islington and be open access for all those eligible. It will need to develop and maintain strong partnerships with local NHS acute and mental health trusts to support treatment of tobacco dependency in line with the NHS Plan, ensuring robust referral pathways into the service. The service will also offer support and training to local GPs and community pharmacists commissioned to deliver stop smoking services through a separate locally commissioned scheme.

The service will need to be available and easily accessible in a variety of settings and venues across the boroughs, use a range of mediums and operate flexible hours to maximise accessibility. The service will provide service users with appropriate stop smoking medications to support their quit attempt in line with clinical guidelines.

The service will operate a website which will provide clear, accessible, evidence-based, up to date information, advice, and motivational tips on stopping smoking and will promote the fact that the service is free.

II.1.4) Short description

Islington Council invites suitable expressions of interest from suppliers for the delivery of a Community Stop Smoking Service across the boroughs of Camden and Islington.

Current status / Background

The Camden and Islington Community Stop Smoking Service (CISSS) has been delivered as a joint service since 2017. Both councils are committed to providing evidence-based services that treat tobacco dependency effectively, help smokers to stop smoking, reduce smoking related health harms and inequality, support residents to stay healthy, and ensure children have the best start in life. The CISSS will contribute to the reduction of smoking prevalence, and as a result increase the ability of communities to live healthier lives.

The CISSS model was developed after extensive engagement with stakeholders, and incorporates research from University College London. The model uses a three-tier approach to support (low intensity through to high intensity) to ensure smokers receive the best support to help them stop smoking.

The tiers of the service can be defined as:

• Tier 1 self-support through online or app-based information and printed media to those smokers who want to quit without face-to-face support.

• Tier 2 brief support (minimum two sessions) with appropriate medication provided by trained professionals in community settings.

• Tier 3 specialist support with appropriate medication to highly addicted smokers who find it harder to quit so can benefit from an intensive face-to-face intervention and behavioural support.

The model has further adapted to take account of the COVID pandemic which resulted in some modifications that received positive feedback from service users.
