The NHS could pre­scribe e-cig­a­rettes to help smok­ers kick the habit. How­ever the pro­posal has drawn a mixed re­ac­tion from the public.

Sharon Lo­gie (34), from Fern­hill, said:“I like it’s a good idea. I smoke and I think it would help me quit.”

Chris­tine Milne, said:“It’s a bit of a con­flict of in­ter­est when they are cut­ting back on an­tibi­otics to save money.

Liam Tay­lor (32), from Fern­hill, said:“I went on them for a while but they just made my lungs worse.”

Jean Hol­loway (78) from Burn­side said:“I don’t agree with it. E-cig­a­rettes are just as harm­ful.”
