No Smoking Day

Wednesday 11th March is No Smoking Day.

The No Smoking Day web site offers access to materials to promote smoking cessation. Those working within the NHS can use these materials for health promotion purposes. The main focus of the materials this year appears to be the financial benefits of quitting smoking.

A person who smokes 20 cigarettes a day would gain around £40 each week, or £2,000 in a year, to spend on other things.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of these materials and use them to support local smoking cessation campaigns.
