Healthcare providers can use the information to provide an overview of service quality compared with other providers of the same service
Each SSQD is ‘refreshed’ with up-to-date outcomes submitted from national data sources, and where necessary healthcare providers, on a quarterly basis. (NHS England)

Latest statistics published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)1today show that in 2015-16 10.6 per cent2 of pregnant women in England were recorded as smokers at the time of giving birth3. This represents 67,200 of 631,230 maternities4.

This is lower than in 2014-15 (when it was 11.4 per cent) and is also the lowest annual figure since this series was first published in 2006-07 (when it was 15.1 per cent). This decrease means the national annual percentage of women recorded as smokers at the time of giving birth in a financial year was below the national target of 11.0 per cent5 for the first time.

However, there were areas in England where up to a quarter of women giving birth over the last 12 months were smokers.

Statistics on Women’s Smoking Status at Time of Delivery is a quarterly and annual report, which provides a picture at Commissioning Region, Area Team and Clinical Commissioning Group level.

The report shows wide regional variation in the 12 months up to March 2016:

  •  Of England’s 209 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS Blackpool had the highest prevalence, with one in four (26.0 per cent) women recorded as being smokers at the time of delivery.
  •  The CCG with the lowest prevalence was NHS Central London (Westminster) at 1.5 per cent.
  •  Overall, 103 CCGs in England (49.3 per cent) met or surpassed the national 11 per cent target.
  •  The area team with the highest prevalence was Cumbria and North East with 16.0 per cent of women recorded as smokers at the time of giving birth.
  •  The Area Team with the lowest prevalence, London, had 4.9 per cent of women recorded as smokers at the time of delivery.
