Public Health Suffolk has launched a new campaign designed to help employees in Suffolk to quit smoking. An estimated 1 in 4 people in routine and manual occupations smoke, compared with 1 in 10 people in managerial and professional occupations (Public Health England 2018). In Suffolk three people a day die due to smoking related illnesses.

Every day last year that someone was absent from work due to ill health it cost UK companies on average £720.

 The campaign aims to promote that by taking action businesses and organisations who have contact with Suffolk employees, to raise awareness of the support available to people to stop smoking, can make a big difference by promoting good health and people well and in work. Which is where our new campaign comes in!
