NHS helps smokers to quit

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Smoking cessation services hailed a success as targets are exceeded by 50per centMore than 61,000 smokers gave up the habit in the past year after receivinghelp from NHS smoking cessation services, according to the Department ofHealth. Some 126,800 smokers set a date to give up smoking in England in the past 12months, and nearly half – 61,000 – had been successful a month later. Smoking cessation services were launched within health action zones in 1999and have been provided in all health authorities since April last year. This has made an extended range of services available, including a nationaltelephone helpline, nicotine replacement therapy and smoking cessation aids onprescription. Specialist services are available for pregnant women. The Government is committed to spending more than £53m on NHS smokingcessation services up to 2002 and to bringing in legislation that bans tobaccoadvertising – although there was no mention of it in this year’s Queen’sSpeech. Health Minister Lord Hunt said, “Smoking causes 120,000 deaths in theUK each year and treating smoking-related diseases costs the NHS about £1.7bn ayear. “The services have already exceeded their target for the first year by50 per cent and justify the substantial funding that we are providing.” However, plans to ban smoking in the workplace have been scrapped by theGovernment following pressure from the pub and restaurant trade. Ministers have rejected advice from the Health and Safety Commission for alegal code that would have forced employers either to ban smoking or takestringent measures to protect staff from others’ smoke.
