To open the Stop Smoking template, go to:  auto-consultations > NURSES and HCAS > Stop Smoking.  Alternatively, add the template to F12 shortcuts for easy access.

There are three tabs in the Stop Smoking template: Assessment Appointment, Quit Date Appointment and Follow-up Appointment.  Note: red and blue stars indicate that there is payment associated with this field. Red stars mean that this is QOF related and blue stars mean that it links to a National Enhanced Service.  


This section is to be used to add read codes about their persona, smoking history, and CO Reading. 

There are also tools to help such as, smoker life expectancy and the nicotine dependency score.  

There is a pack years calculator. Just click the link to go to the calculator webpage.


This is to record the patient's current smoking status and use of e-cigarettes.


This section is for information such as goals, quit date, leaflets and stop-smoke medication.  There is also a follow-up template and a patient summary leaflet.  Before opening the patient summary leaflet, please make sure that you ok & re-open the template so that any relevant information that you have just recorded merges onto the handout.

Don't forget to ok the template and save the record when finished.

If you need any help please click help & feedback at the top right hand corner of the template and click contact us if you wish to fill in the online form for help.
