Cancer Focus Northern Ireland



Smoking causes one third of all cancer deaths in Northern Ireland and is our greatest cause of preventable ill health. It not only increases the risk of cancer for the smoker but also for everyone else around them.

Help to stop smoking

Our award-winning Stop Smoking service is funded by the Public Health Agency (PHA) in GP practices, health and wellbeing centres, community, workplace and youth settings – including schools. See here for details of our clinics.

Our Stop Smoking support services consistently have a quit success rate of 68% in four weeks – well above the NICE guideline of 35%.

We will come to your workplace to help smokers and we provide Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) as well as behavioural support. This gives smokers handy access to support in one place.

We look at overcoming the fear of quitting, coping with cravings, managing stress, avoiding weight gain and adjusting to a better lifestyle.

Support standardised packaging

Hundreds of children start smoking in the UK every day replacing smokers who quit or die. Plain, standardised packaging will make cigarettes less tempting for children.

Please watch this powerful video and then email your MP to make standardised packaging a reality in 2016.

The clock ticks

Every day 430 children become smokers in the UK. That's

since the consultation on standard packs closed. Tell the Government to act.
