Launched during Healthy City Week 2016, the website will help anyone looking for advice about local stop smoking services, weight management, support with drinking, getting active and general wellbeing, as well as providing information about free health checks for those aged 40 – 74. You can also find guidance on how to self-refer to stop smoking services, making it as simple as possible to get support.
