There's always something happening around the county to help you quit smoking. Get all the latest news and information here.


When you smoke it damages your immune system, reducing your bodies’ defence against infections, such as coronavirus (COVID-19).

Smokers are therefore at greater risk of:

• Getting serious respiratory infections

• Infections lasting longer and being more serious than a non-smoker

So why not make now the time to quit for good? Give us a call on 0800 085 2299.
