The Quit Smoking Clinic will offer a multi-week program where clients will receive counselling and no-cost NRT. The clinics will be offered at the Haldimand War Memorial Hospital on Tuesdays. The Health Unit also operates Quit Clinics in Caledonia and Simcoe. All Haldimand and Norfolk residents are eligible to come to the clinics.
