                       Stop while you shop!


Bury’s NHS Stop Smoking Team will be in the Millgate Shopping centre on
the 1st February 2008 to support smokers to stub it out for good.

Last year, Bury’s Stop Smoking Service helped over 1,500 local people to quit
smoking, and this year they want to help even more people to enjoy the
benefits a smokefree life has to offer.

The service offers smokers who want to stop the best chance of success.
Clients who access the service will receive free advice and support tailored to
their individual needs, they can meet in groups or one-to-one with a specialist
advisor, and can also access the latest stop smoking products on prescription.

Kate Shepherd, Service Manager for Bury Primary Care Trust’s (PCT’s) Stop
Smoking Service said;
“There’s no doubt about it, it's a real challenge to get unhooked, but it’s the
best thing you can do to improve your health, save money and take back
control of your life. Deciding to quit is the first step to success and doing it
with us can be up to four times more effective than willpower alone.”

The team will be in the Millgate Shopping Centre on Friday 1st February
2008 between 9.30am and 4pm.

Further information is also available by calling the team on 0845 223 9001
or sending an e-mail to stopsmoking@burypct.nhs.uk
