Dr Emilia Crighton, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s Director of Public Health, has welcomed today’s 2014 Scottish Household Survey results, which shows a decline in smoking rates since 1999.
Dr Crighton said: “The results of the Scottish Household Survey for 2014 published today show a welcome and hugely encouraging decline in smoking rates since 1999.
“NHSGGC offers world class stop smoking services in local community venues and in all pharmacies across the health board area.
“Since 2010 we have helped some 150,000 smokers to make quit attempts – that’s enough people to fill Hampden Stadium three times over.
“Our services are local, free, friendly and most importantly, effective.
“I would urge anyone who wants to kick the habit to contact us to see how we can help.”
