Stop Smoking Service Consultation

Smoking is the biggest cause of death and illness in the UK. Sandwell Council invests heavily in helping smokers who want to quit smoking to make the best of their quit attempts. This investment has helped to considerably reduce the level of smoking in Sandwell.

A lot of smokers wanting to quit are now doing it on their own without needing the support of the Stop Smoking Service, and so we are considering how best to support smokers who want to quit. If you are a smoker or ex-smoker, please help us by completing a short survey by 18 May 2018.
