The aim of this strategy is to secure a collective approach to Tobacco Control and reduce the harms caused by tobacco. The responsible working group will be South Gloucestershire’s Tobacco Control Alliance. The Alliance will establish a comprehensive delivery plan that will demonstrate clear accountability and risk management against each of the three workstreams. The plan will be reviewed bi-annually with an annual report made to South Gloucestershire’s Health & Wellbeing board with clear ownership for actions on the delivery plan for the Public Health and Wellbeing Team and other internal and external partners. One of the key priorities for the Tobacco Control Alliance members will be to work in partnership in order to achieve a Smokefree generation in the future.
We will review our performance, learn from experiences, build on achievements and adapt the plan as necessary. We will gather evidence from our local initiatives and build on what we know works for our communities of South Gloucestershire.
