Perspective from England: evidence, PHE and RCP reports

15:35 - 15:50

Since 1998 the UK has developed a comprehensive tobacco control strategy encompassing price rises, smoke-free legislation, treatment, mass media campaigns, pictorial health warnings, advertising ban including point of sale display ban and standardised packaging. Stemming back to Prof. Michael Russell’s influence in the 1970s and 1980s, RCP, ASH and NICE have produced reports/guidance developing the evidence base and guiding principles for harm reduction approaches. PHE commissioned stakeholder consultations and evidence reviews of electronic cigarettes in 2014 and 2015. Following the latter review, a joint statement was produced by a number of organisations. These initiatives will be discussed and the latest evidence on e-cigarette use and smoking presented.
