Support Quitting Smoking
As part of our health promotion campaigns and leading a healthier lifestyle, it is a requirement that we record your smoking status.
It is never too late to improve your health and giving up smoking will help you to do that.
Smoking increases the risk of several life changing conditions including heart attack, stroke and cancer.
Quitting smoking improves your health and protects your family and those around you.
There are a number of ways to help you to stop smoking including mobile phone apps, text messaging and email support. Have a look at these websites for tips on how to quit:
