A No-Smoking Day bus will be rolling into Accrington to offer hands-on health advice.
To mark National No Smoking Day on Wednesday, March 10, an NHS East Lancashire team will be parking up outside Acrrington town hall on Thursday, March 11 to offer its services.
Trained specialist stop smoking advisers will offer impromptu advice to shoppers on how to kick the habit.
They will also be available to carry out free lung-age checks which will give smokers a clear idea of the effect their smoking habit is having on their health.
The team aim to support people to kick the habit 'when they want, where they want, in their own way'.
Janet Walton, head of tobacco control at NHS East Lancashire, said: "We are constantly looking at ways of making it even easier for people in East Lancashire to quit smoking.
"We now have more one-to-one appointments with specialist advisers who can offer expert advice and a tailor made quitting plan just for you.
"We also boast group support in areas for those who would like to share their experience with others.
"All our support services take place at a wide range of local venues at different days and times, so smokers can fit in sessions around their work and home life.
"It is now easier than ever to quit smoking, and you are four times more likely to quit with NHS East Lancashire’s Stop Smoking Service."
