News Review 4th October

NewsReview-02

 

This is the week that was….

For the second week, the recurring theme was the Article 20 Legal Challenge with the handover to the Department of Health on the 29th September. This coincided with a large NHS trust going ‘smokefree’ and the proposals for a prison smoking ban.

Rounding off the week was the launch of the ‘Stoptober’ campaign that strangely coincided with the release of “low nic cigarettes” research and how e-cigarettes could affect “Big Tobacco”.
