Stop smoking city centre shop gets a makeover

Have your say

Health bosses are stepping up efforts to get Sheffield’s smokers to kick the habit.

New signs have been introduced to promote the Sheffield NHS Stop Smoking Service in the city centre.

The Quit Stop in Charles Street, which opened in 2011, has been given a makeover in a bid to encourage more smokers to access support.

It is open six days a week and is staffed by trained advisors.

Claire Holden, service manager, said: “Stopping smoking is one of the most effective ways of improving your health and free help is available from our service to help you quit. You’re four times more likely to stop smoking for good with our support.”

There were 854 smoking-related deaths in Sheffield last year, according to NHS figures.
