The Yorkshire Smokefree team are delivering support and service within workplaces throughout the region, helping to promote and develop a healthier, positive work environment across South Yorkshire. Doncaster prison is going smoke free this year, so the Doncaster Stop Smoking team went to deliver an introductory session with staff members.
Do you want to get fit and stop smoking? Our Doncaster service has an exciting new initiative to help you do just that.
Our team have been visiting local GP practices who have achieved the highest quit rates in the Doncaster area and presenting them with certificates for their hard work and performance for year 2015-2016.
The number of people in Doncaster quitting cigarettes by using the Yorkshire Smokefree service has increased by more than a quarter in the past year. In 2015/16 1338 people stopped smoking, a big increase on 2014/15 when 1058 people quit.
The two Doncaster quitters took part in our recent workplace sessions at SKANSKA in Bentley. Over the past few weeks they have come a long way and are now feeling healthier and fitter than ever.
Doncaster Smokefree packed up their leaflets and joined in at the health promotion at the Redmond Centre in Doncaster.

Debbie has tried to quit smoking several times over the last few years but never been successful. After her mum was recently diagnosed with lung cancer, Debbie decided that the time had come for her to cut of the habit for good. She was incredibly motivated to stop smoking for her mum because of her illness - so she did.
Having 3 cancer scares within days, a tooth infection that wouldn't budge and a two disabled children she decided to quit her 30 a day habit. For the health of herself and her family she overcame the difficulties and is now feeling much more energetic (with a cleared infection!)
