The publication of the white paper Smoking Kills in 1998 marked the beginning of a comprehensive approach to tobacco control in the UK. Since then, much progress has been made in implementing the policies set out in Smoking Kills, including the establishment of NHS stop smoking services. This workshop will reflect on the achievements of the last ten years from the perspective of practitioners and researchers who have been active in the field during this period. With a particular focus on the stop smoking services, it will explore how far we have come and what more needs to be done to achieve the goals and aims of tobacco control in the future.

Contributors to the workshop include: Linda Bauld (University of Bath and UKCTCS), Louise Ross (Leicester Stop Smoking Service), Chris Owens (Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation), Gay Sutherland (Institute of Psychiatry and South London and Maudsley NHS Trust), Paul Hooper (West Midlands RTPM) and Martin Dockrell (ASH).
