The aim of this observational study was to assess the potential future impact of smoking cessation services in Glasgow reducing overall smoking prevalence’s in general and inequalities between areas in particular. It was concluded that in general, services are provided in proportion to the number of smokers in each deprivation decile. It also highlights that simulations sugges that services might be expected to reduce overall smoking prevalence amongst adults over a period of ten years. However, services will not help to reduce inequalities and using Glasgow decile data, the relative index of inequality is predicted to increase by five percent from 2004 to 2014.
