More smokers try to quit

17th August 2011

The number of people turning to the NHS to try to stop smoking has trebled in the last 10 years.

However, figures from the NHS Information Centre shows that despite nearly 788,000 using the services in England this year, fewer than half succeed and many of those who do stop later relapse. About a fifth of adults in England are smokers, even though more are using quit smoking services at a cost of £84.3m in 2010/11, which is £500,000 more than in the previous year and almost £60m more than 10 years ago.
