A report published [...] by Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) has called for a national plan to implement training on smoking for mental health staff, including nurses and psychiatrists. The call comes in response to concerns reported by staff who felt they were ill-equipped to support their patients.

The charity said its report highlighted that the current training of mental health nurses and psychiatrists to help their patients to quit smoking was “woefully inadequate”.
