Launch of national smoking cessation programme

31 October 2000 Media Advisory

Launch of national smoking cessation programme: Wednesday, November 1, 2pm


Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 1, at 2pm, Health Minister Annette King will announce the details of the new national programme to provide subsidised nicotine patches and gum to heavy smokers. Mrs King will announce the details at the Quitline offices, Level 12, Willbank House, 57 Willis Street, Wellington.

The programme is one of the first in the world to offer subsidised Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) through a freephone line and follows the Government's allocation of some $6.18 million per year for the subsidised supply of NRT.

The Minister will be visiting the Quitline offices to meet the people who will take calls from smokers who wish to access the subsidised nicotine patches and gum.

ENDS
