BMA Cymru Wales backs call for all-Wales Tobacco strategy

Last week, I joined other members of the Welsh Tobacco Control Alliance (WTCA) in calling on the Welsh Assembly Government to develop and implement a comprehensive Tobacco Control Strategy for Wales.

The launch took place at the National Assembly - with First Minister, Rhodri Morgan and Grand Slam winner and Junior doctor, Jamie Roberts doing the official honours.

The WTCA is calling for additional measures to strengthen community action for tobacco control, ensure access for all smokers to effective and equitable cessation services and products, encourage people to go smoke free in their own homes, and for greater investment in training, research and monitoring.

Current members of the WTCA are:
ASH Wales
British Heart Foundation
BMA Cymru Wales
British Lung Foundation Cymru
Cancer Research UK
Diabetes UK Cymru
Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (Wales)
The Stoke Association (Wales)
Firebrake Wales
Community Housing Cymru
Cardiff University
Children in Wales
All Wales Ethnic Minority Association
Royal College of Nursing
Asthma UK
