GPs should prescribe e-cigarettes to provide 'assurance to consumers', says Government body

Comment

As probably one of the few doctors who actually had a shop selling e-cigs ... can't say I am desperately keen to be prescribing e-cigs. Too many different sorts, flavours, and changing all the time. However as a practice we did fund vouchers for patients to get a discount in my shop and another in town. It was helpful to get patients especially from the our more deprived areas to give them a try. Smuggled rolling tobacco is only about £4/week and cheap as they are the upfront cost is an issue for some, also the voucher was a positive endorsement.
