Condition

Smoking cessation

Intervention

The study will be a controlled trial that will take place in general practices in Bristol. In order to avoid contamination, randomisation will take place at the practice level. The intervention practices will use a short questionnaire which has been designed to assess readiness to quit, as a screening tool, while the smoking cessation advice clinics in control practices will continue to take referrals according to usual practice and supply their audit data at the end of a 6 month period.

The trial will take place over a six-month period.

Primary outcome measures

The primary outcome measure will be the percentage of missed first appointments compared with corresponding pre-trial periods. The waiting list and the audited quit rates will also be examined. Analysis will also compare the questionnaire scores with a successful quit attempt. It is anticipated that this will be used to contribute to the validation of the questionnaire.
