23rd January 2009

A NHS trust has said it will give pregnant women vouchers up to the value of £100 if they manage to stop smoking.

North-East Essex NHS Trust will be give pregnant women a £20 voucher if they stop for one week, then £40 if they stop for a month and another £40 if they quit for a year. Sue White, who heads the North East Essex scheme, said: "We hope by offering this added incentive of shopping vouchers it could make the difference with some women between kicking the habit or carrying on smoking."
