16:10 - 16:25

Louise Ross, Stop Smoking Service Manager for Leicester City Council, talks about the impact that switching to vaping can have on some of the most vulnerable people in the city.  The rules about what stop smoking services can and can’t do remain unclear, but Leicester has shown that not waiting for clarity can change people’s lives within weeks

  • Access to information on e-cigarettes is harder for disadvantaged groups can the stop smoking services bridge this gap
  • E-cigarettes address more than just nicotine dependence and can break the social and cultural ties of smoking behaviour
