COVID-19: Face-to-face consultations and CO monitoring
UPDATE: 13th January 2021
The last guidance on face-to-face stop smoking consultations issued in November 2020 by the NCSCT on behalf of PHE was very clear that there is no national mandate to resume face-to-face consultations:
"Any decision by service providers to resume face-to-face provision should be considered alongside local coronavirus restrictions, as well as operational practicalities within the stop smoking service"
"Remote behavioural support remains a practical option for continuity of stop smoking provision, where services consider that this remains the best local option."
The guidance remains current.
