A move to make Jersey's quit smoking programme more accessible is being launched in the new year.
About 850 people a year have been supported by the Help2Quit service, run out of the island's hospital, since it launched in 2009.
From 1 January the service will instead be run from 12 pharmacies in a bid to save money and provide better help.
Andrew Heaven, the Health Department's head of health improvement, said the service would continue to be free.
