A NEW vape clinic is to be launched in Barrow to help people quit smoking.

VPZ, the UK’s largest vaping retailer, has launched a new Vape Clinic service in the town this month.

Their new store in Dalton Road, Barrow offers local smokers one-to-one consultation with VPZ’s vaping specialists.

After the successful trial of a pilot Vape Clinic at VPZ’s flagship Newbridge store in Edinburgh in July, the service has now been rolled out across the VPZ retail estate.

With around 78,000 people in the UK dying from smoking year on year, and with many more living with debilitating smoking-related illnesses, the vape clinic has been introduced to support the nation’s smokers quit for good.

Doug Mutter, Director of VPZ said: “As the UK’s leading vaping specialist, we are spearheading the fight against the nation’s number one killer –smoking.

“We are proud to roll out our Vape Clinic service in Barrow and beyond this Stoptober to give the nation’s smokers the support they need to quit and help the country regain its momentum toward becoming a smoke free nation by 2030.

“Smoking statistics are continuing to rise as the Pandemic has triggered an increase in smoking rates and the public health problem has been compounded by funding cuts for NHS stop smoking services and local support groups.

“Our new Vape Clinic concept is an investment to fill the void left by the loss of local NHS stop smoking services. We are so confident in the success of our new service that we are offering our customers a money-back guarantee if they are unable to make the switch entirely.”

VPZ Vape Clinics are open 7 days a week between 10am to 5pm to all customers who book a free, 30 minute Vape Clinic Appointment.
