E-cigarettes advice

Public Health England (PHE) has published its new framework advice for businesses and employers to help them create their own policies on the use of e-cigarettes. There are now 2.8 million e-cigarette users in the UK and there is a need for appropriate policies in public places and workplaces. PHE’s new framework helps organisations create e-cigarette policies that will support smokers to quit and stay smokefree, while managing any risks specific to their setting. Further information about PHE’s framework is here​, and its vaping blog is here.

In February 2016 the CCG hosted a Twitter chat looking at the prescribing of e-cigarettes. The CCG continues to advise South Devon and Torbay GPs that e-cigarettes should not been prescribed.
