It has been revealed that nearly 7,000 people in the Notts area have successfully quit smoking through the help of locally commissioned stop smoking services.

A report has stated that 6,858 have quit since Notts County Council teamed up with local GPs and pharmacies, New Leaf Stop Smoking Service in Nottinghamshire, and the Bassetlaw Stop Smoking Service to help kick the area’s number one health priority.

The free initiative came after it was revealed that 19.4% of Notts people are smokers, though that figure is down from the 23% that was recorded in 2010.
