Smokers get help to quit

A national TV and radio advertising campaign has been launched to encourage smokers to quit.

From today smokers can pick up a new and improved NHS Quit Kit from thousands of pharmacies across England to help them stop smoking.

The campaign aims to increase the number of quit attempts by smokers and to help make those quit attempts more successful. It will run until 31 March 2012.

More than 7,000 pharmacies across England have already signed up to distribute Quit Kits in 2012 – nearly double the number of participants in 2011.
