Prevention


Smoking

Our work to prevent ill health, brings together organisations in health and care to take actions that benefit local people’s health and wellbeing in a wide variety of settings across east London.

The overarching NHS and public health plan, focuses on building an NHS fit for the future. But the plan only works now, and in the future, if we all share a commitment to help:

  • everyone to get the best start in life
  • communities live well
  • people to age well

Our current priorities are to:

  • support people to stop smoking and prevent young people from starting to use tobacco in the first place
  • increase the number of people who are screened earlier 
  • prevent diabetes, and improve outcomes for people who have the condition helping them to receive earlier treatment.
