Smokers are being offered a "lifestyle upgrade" from Dunedin health professionals for free.

 

Te Kaika has started a new smoking cessation programme, which offers patients a four-week interactive course and support on their journey to becoming smoke-free.

About 30 people, including people aged from 21 through to 86, had already signed up to the He Manu Kokiri programme which launched last week.

Health improvement practitioner Sarah Redfearn said the name of the programme, which referred to a legend where a flock of birds helped each other to get to their desired location, was fitting as working together was what it was all about.
