Below information has been provided by Hertfordshire Health Improvement Service:
Almost every minute of every day someone is admitted to hospital because of smoking, and up to 75,000 GP appointments could be attributed to smoking each month - equivalent to over 100 appointments every hour.
Smoking causes around 1 in 4 of all UK cancer deaths and is responsible for the great majority of lung cancer cases. Smoking is also a major cause of premature heart disease, stroke and heart failure and increases the risk of dementia in the elderly.
As a result, smoking puts significant pressure on the NHS. Reducing the prevalence of smoking in Hertfordshire continues to be a Public Health and NHS priority.
