Part 1: Introduction

Share your views on our plans to help patients stop smoking and lose weight before surgery.

We are planning to introduce a scheme in 2018 to encourage patients who smoke or have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above (an obese body weight), to try to stop smoking and/or lose weight for a period of time, before they are referred for surgery.

Please fill in this survey to share your views on our proposals and help us to make sure that the scheme is as effective as possible. Anything you tell us will be shared anonymously.

The closing date for filling in this survey is Monday 8 January 2018.
