We have no reliable local estimate for the City of London smoking prevalence rate, and no usable data on City of London residents’ use of stop smoking services (SSS), so we cannot directly compare estimated to met need.

However, across Hackney and City based SSS combined, fewer than five service users in the first half of 2015/16 were registered with the one City GP practice (Neaman Practice) – which serves the vast majority (81%) of City residents. 2  This represents a very low uptake of local SSS in the City (less than 66 per 100,000 registered patients age 20+ compared with 608 per 100,000 in Hackney).
