Ilfracombe smokers helped to kick the habit

New weekly clinic will offer help and advice to those wanting to stop smoking

SMOKERS in Ilfracombe are being offered a helping hand to give up the habit at a new clinic which starts this Thursday.

The free weekly clinic, run by Northern Devon Healthcare Trust, will be held at the Ilfracombe Centre, from 1pm to 4.30pm.

The one-to-one confidential support sessions are available to anyone over the age of 12.

Lyn Tehver, stop smoking advisor, said: “I am really pleased that we will now be able to offer support to give up smoking for good to Ilfracombe residents.

“Research shows that you are four times more likely to give up with NHS support so it’s important that as many people as possible can access a local clinic.”

To make an appointment to attend the clinic or to find out more, call the service direct on (01884) 836024 or email
