The government have published the new smoking cessation service statistics on August 19th (for the full year 2014/15). The headline is that quitter numbers are down for a third year in a row in England (24% down on last year) (see PR here).
Not so for us – quitters are up for the third year in a row (5% up across Berkshire and 9% up in BF). Bracknell Forest has achieved the highest quit success rate in South East England (72%).
