  • Advice to services on making vaping products available to clients

    Making the case and addressing concerns.

    In 2021 we published advice to support English stop smoking services to make vapes (e-cigarettes) available to their clients.

    The NEW guidance, again written in partnership with Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID), makes the case for providing nicotine vapes as a first-line option for clients alongside medicinally licensed stop smoking products.

    This edition updates some of the evidence on safety and effectiveness of vapes. The main update, however, is information on Crown Commercial Services' recent inclusion of new vaping product catalogues within existing public sector procurement frameworks.
