Smokers in Dudley borough are being urged to Quit for Covid to help protect themselves and others during the coronavirus pandemic.
Smoking can lead to a weaker immune system, therefore putting people at greater risk of developing a severe complication from the COVID-19 virus.
Those around them exposed to second hand smoke, including children and people with underlying health conditions, are also at an increased risk.
Stopping smoking not only has health benefits for individuals and those around them, but also helps alleviate pressure on our NHS service.
In Dudley, there are lots of free stop smoking services available including, ‘over the phone’ appointments with Wellness coaches, Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) products through the post, and the ‘Quit With Bella’ app – the Stop Smoking robo-coach.
Check out our Stop Smoking pages for more information.
