  • NHS Standard Treatment Plan (STP) for Acute Inpatient Tobacco Dependence

    This NHS Standard Treatment Plan (STP) for Acute Inpatient Tobacco Dependence provides guidance to support delivery of the inpatient tobacco dependence treatment bundle.

    The STP is designed to ensure patients receive a consistent and evidence-based tobacco dependence support that provides them with the best possible chance of having a smokefree hospital admission and a goal of long-term abstinence.

    The STP is structured around the three Tobacco Dependence Treatment Care Bundles:

    • Admission Care Bundle
    • Inpatient Care Bundle
    • Post-Discharge Care Bundle

    Each section of the STP begins with a clinical checklist and is followed by guidance on conducting an assessment and delivering tobacco dependence support.

    The checklists below are made available as a standalone document to aid implementation of the STP. COMING SOON!

    A feedback form can be found below so that NHS staff can make suggestions for improvements to the STP. COMING SOON!
