Councils cut hundreds of thousands of pounds from stop smoking services

Comment

At least in Manchester, the smoking cessation can be taken up by the GP's as part of the seven day access that is so widely flouted. Seeing as one whole patient turns up at their under subscribed but overly expensive clinics, it would be perfect use of highly skilled GP's time. I hope the Manchester federation are reading this article ready to pounce, to make their unnecessary 7 day access worth while.
