  1. Notes:
  2. Readers will have noticed that Stage 1 refers to smokers identified at maternity booking during the 12 month period April 2004 to March 2005. Stages 2-5 refer to a period March 2005 to February 2006. Little change took place in self-reported current smoking at maternity booking between the year ending March 2005 - 22.5% and the year ending March 2006 21.7% [9]. Much of this difference can be explained by an increase in the 'not known' category from 7.2% to 9.4%.
  3. 1. CATCH data [21] from June 2005- May 2006 - Vale of Leven bookers deliver at Queen Mother's and Royal Alexandra, Greenock bookers mostly deliver at Royal Alexandria in Paisley
  4. § 'breathe' statistics [15] Jan-Dec'06 with booking figures for same period.
  5. The Queen Mother's Hospital delivers patients booked in a geographic area north of the River Clyde where smoking cessation support is provided by the (CATCH) service [21]. It is estimated that 100 smokers from the CATCH service deliver in the Queen Mother's Hospital. Therefore, for clarity, these smokers have been moved from the Queen Mothers Hospital to the Royal Alexandra Hospital so that the separate service models CATCH - home-based and breathe - clinic based can be compared more easily. This was done for the paper describing 'breathe' [15] and it would seem appropriate to repeat this adjustment.
  6. §§ Taken from the National Smoking Cessation Database [West Lothian: St John's Howden, rest of Lothian: Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh]
  7. μ from questionnaire for the mapping exercise
  8. * Active staffing levels may be lower at times, for example absence due to sick leave or difficulty in filling posts.
  9. ** 3 months post quit date
  10. *** Total births do not reflect SMR or ISD as births from 2006 used for 'breathe data
  11. + Generic services are those provided for all smokers and include 'Smokeline' and pharmacy based services not specifically aimed at individual groups such as pregnant smokers.
