A life-changing health service helping pregnant mothers stop smoking has won a top award.
The Baby Clear project helps to reduce maternal smoking levels across the borough and won the Helping Smokers Quit prize at a NHS London Clinical Senate ceremony earlier this month.
Clinicians and managers at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) worked with Barking and Dagenham Council and North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT) to roll-out the project in maternity services.
Council leader Cllr Darren Rodwell said:“Being recognised by the NHS for the achievements of the Baby Clear project and other smoking cessation initiatives shows the significance and impact of this partnership work that the council, NELFT and BHRUT have been doing.”
