| The UKNSCC is uniquely focussed on the information, practice, and networking needs of the smoking cessation and tobacco control fields.|
The programme is completely independent from the conference organisation, and is co-ordinated by conference programme director Dr Andy McEwen, Director of the NCSCT.
He works closely with the programme planning committee and the conference supporting organisations to ensure that the programme is interesting, topical, and relevant.
