Health chiefs in bid to help more smokers quit

Smokers across Northern Ireland are being urged to seek help in breaking free from their smoking habit.

That was the challenge set by the No Smoking Day team and the Ulster Cancer Foundation at a regional conference to brief health professionals in preparation for No Smoking Day which is being held on Wednesday, March 14.

No Smoking Day provides smokers who want to quit with the motivation and support they need to be successful.

At the recent conference the No Smoking Day team encouraged health professionals to help communities kick the habit by making plans now to stop.

The No Smoking Day Campaign in Northern Ireland is co-ordinated by (UCF).

Gerry McElwee, chair of the No Smoking Day Committee (NI) and head of Cancer Prevention at the Ulster Cancer Foundation, said: ”This event continues to achieve high levels of public recognition and involvement, and indeed its greatest impact is right here in Northern Ireland.”
