Stopping smoking is the lifestyle change that has the greatest single impact on individual and family health. Last year over 3,700 people in Hampshire quit smoking through the County Council commissioned NHS stop smoking service, Quit4Life.
Councillor Patricia Stallard, Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Health and Public Health said: “Giving up smoking is difficult, and as a Council we want to make sure we are giving the right support and encouragement to those who want to stop. To ensure that our commissioned Quit for Life service is supporting people in the most effective way possible, we are asking smokers to take part in a short survey to help us understand what support would be most effective and how people would like to access it.”
The 10 minute survey can be completed at www.hants.gov.uk/smokersurvey
Cllr Stallard continued: “Our aim is to offer stop smoking support through Quit4life to around 8000 smokers this year and to do that we need to make sure that future services provide what smokers need.”
