The NHS is spending more money helping people stop smoking - but fewer are quitting, say official figures.Which I’m guessing can’t be covered just by inflation?
The cost per quitter was £219 in 2008/09 compared with £173 in 2007/08 and £160 in 2006/07.
Well, since one of the main methods for giving up is left out of these figures, I’m guessing that’s ‘No’:
The proportion of people successfully quitting last year went down four per cent. But spending went up 21 per cent last year to £74m - not including the cost of nicotine replacement therapy.Why not include it?
