Have your say

Smokers can get help to quit while they shop.

Quit4Life, Hampshire’s NHS stop smoking service, has opened a new venue at The Hub in Park Parade, right in the heart of the Leigh Park shopping centre.

Shoppers can find out more about the range of stop smoking products available and new visitors to The Hub will be able to get free aids – such as patches – for up to eight weeks.

Anyone who wants to stop smoking can drop in for a drink while out shopping, or during a lunch break, and have a chat with one of Quit4Life’s specialist advisers.

The new venue – already familiar to many Leigh Park residents as the former Greyhound pub opposite the library – will be open from Monday to Friday, 9am until 5pm.

There will also be a choice of weekly drop-in sessions or one-to-one appointments for those who want to receive regular support to quit.

Gone are the days when you had to join ‘group support’. Quit4Life says it is proud of its success rate and the range of support options available across the county, including drop-in-sessions, one-to-one appointments, workplace programmes or even telephone support if you are unable to attend regular sessions.

Simply pop in to The Hub for an informal chat, or call (023) 9234 4321 or 0845 602 4663 for more information.
