Smoking Cessation Services 2020

The commissioners have updated the smoking cessation service and have removed the paper claiming forms. From the 1st September 2020, service provision will be recorded solely on PharmOutcomes – you will NOT need to fill in the paper forms. Please destroy the reporting and claim forms. You may still use the other paper-based guidance given to you to support your consultation, but the reporting and invoice generation is now all being completed digitally.

There will be 3 services on PharmOutcomes in use for the Torbay Stop Smoking Service which have been updated to allow accurate data capture whilst still reducing paper workload; these are specified in detail below.

Torbay –

To support resilience and preserve the delivery of this important service during the COVID-19 outbreak commissioners, specialist sexual health providers and the Devon Local Pharmaceutical Committee have agreed to temporarily relax the CPPE and face to face training requirements for pharmacists delivering this service. This means that pharmacists are not currently required to have completed the specified e-learning modules or attended a local face to face training session.
All pharmacists delivering this service should read the Ulipristal Acetate and Levonorgestrel PGDs.
