Julia Robson, Clinical Service Manager of Quit4Life said: “We are delighted to have helped 60,598 smokers to give up smoking across Hampshire – from New Milton to Farnborough, Havant to Andover, and everywhere in between since we started 10 years ago – and Quit4Life will continue to help those who would like to stop smoking.”

Quit4Life 10 year celebrationGinny Taylor, Head of Children and Family Services at Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, said: “As we know from research over the years, informing people of the dangers of smoking and the impact of smoking on our health and the future health of our children is one of the most important pieces of public health work we can do.  I am very proud of the support and advice our Quit4Life staff give to the people of Hampshire and of the success we have in helping people who want to stop smoking and improve their health.”

As Quit4Life celebrates the success of the 60,598 ex-smokers, who have all given up with help directly from the service and Quit4Life’s partners, the team are planning to help even more patients and staff who would like to quit for Stoptober – as well as supporting Southern Health Foundation Trust to go Smokefree at the end of September. Quit4Life party
