Media release

Making tobacco more expensive and less available should be central to a new national tobacco strategy, experts in tobacco control have said. They also want to see mass media campaigns to encourage smokers to go to stop smoking services and reduce exposure to second-hand smoke.

NHS Health Scotland and the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy (SCPHRP) at the University of Edinburgh have published a study of expert views on successes, challenges and future actions on tobacco control policy in Scotland.
