Gerry Stimson's conflicts of interest

we recently became aware that the New Nicotine Alliance (UK) shares an office address with Prof Gerry Stimson’s Knowledge, Action, Change limited company which has apparently received additional grant funding from the FSFW to pass on to ‘scholars’. Prof Stimson was founding Chair of the New Nicotine Alliance here in UK, which declares its independence from both tobacco and e-cigs industry funding eg here:



The NNA(UK) is funded by donations from private individuals and organisations. We do not accept donations from the tobacco industry, the electronic cigarette industry or manufacturers/distributors of other nicotine products. Our independence from commercial conflicts of interest is of paramount importance.


Best wishes,









Sheila Duffy

Chief Executive
