The poster will show why the ‘rolling group’ model of service delivery was introduced by Calderdale Specialist NHS Stop Smoking Service and how a ‘drop in’ element was later implemented into this model. Data will illustrate the success of the groups alongside clients’ views of the service. Staff will also provide feedback of their experience of facilitating the sessions.
