The MyWay Project is a randomised controlled feasibility trial of StopApp, a web-based self-administered interactive intervention designed to address the barriers that smokers typically face in accessing Stop Smoking Services.  The aim of the trial is to establish the feasibility and potential health equity of a future randomised controlled trial of the StopApp intervention. The primary objective is to estimate recruitment and attrition rates of participants across three settings: GP surgeries, community settings and on-line; at baseline, intervention access, and two-month follow-up but also to estimate; the acceptability of randomisation, outcome and cost-effective measures, key costs, feasibility of accessing stop smoking service data , attrition rates across socio-economic groups and rates of stop smoking service attendance in both the treatment and control groups.
