  • 1. www.hertsdirect.org Public Health and Tobacco Control: Our Vision and Leadership in Hertfordshire Jim McManus Director of Public Health Hertfordshire County Council This presentation was developed for our CLeaR assessment for 22nd July 2014
  • 2. www.hertsdirect.org Why Tobacco Control Remains Important to us • Major importance to our public health ambitions and vision • Single most important cause of premature morbidity and mortality • Kills 80,000 people prematurely in England alone • Accounts for 50% of health inequalities between better and worst off – gap is widening • Disproportionately affects most deprived communities and groups
  • 3. www.hertsdirect.org Why we must move towards the endgame for tobacco in Hertfordshire • Tobacco still kills and harms too many people in Hertfordshire • It accounts for over half the gap in avoidable and preventable death between us and our statistical neighbours • It costs far more in death, disease and disability than we can countenance • It costs more in money than we get in tax revenue or jobs or economic gain • The US Surgeon General’s report 2014, 50 years after the famous Dolland and Hill study, implicates tobacco in even more diseases than ever – diabetes included
  • 4. www.hertsdirect.org We want to • Drive down prevalence of tobacco use • Reduce numbers of people taking up tobacco • Work with people not ready to give up tobacco to reduce harm as much as possible in line with NICE guidance • Recognise, welcome and apply the potentially significant positive gains from e-cigarettes in reducing harm from tobacco for our population • We recognise we are still “in the lab” on this
  • 5. www.hertsdirect.org Hertfordshire Smoking Prevalence* %   District Smoking Prevalence (%) 2011 Smoking Prevalence (%) 2012 Change in Percentage  Points Broxbourne 23.6 19.3 -4.3 Dacorum 18.0 17.4 -0.6 East Herts 15.6 15.2 -0.4 Hertsmere 15.1 20.8 +5.7 North Herts 20.8 17.0 -3.8 St Albans 19.7 16.2 -3.5 Stevenage 27.7 22.3 -5.4 Three Rivers 24.6 15.5 -9.1 Watford 18.5 14.3 -4.2 Welwyn Hatfield 21.5 20.4 -1.1 Hertfordshire 20.0 17.7 -2.3 England 20.2 19.5 -0.7 Local Tobacco Profiles 2012*: http://www.tobaccoprofiles.info *Note - wide confidence intervals
