The National Referral System was developed to be a whole hospital approach to supporting patients to stop smoking. It facilitates and encourages staff to ask and record smoking status for every patient, to deliver 30 second ‘very brief advice’ (VBA) and to generate referrals on to local stop smoking support. Since its launch in 2012, it has been adapted to support referrals for weight management, alcohol and physical activity.
”The National Referral System has been just what is needed in hospitals. No one has to look up which service to refer to, make a phone call or a fax, it really is incredibly simple. We really have to be thinking not only about the best service for the patient, but also about making things as easy as possible for staff.” - Camilla Peterken, Smoking Cessation Hospital Programme Manager
