A new nationwide report that has gathered mortality rates data from health authorities and data from the national census on people who smoke has revealed that Ealing is among the top 10 of places where people are both less likely to smoke and die from smoking related diseases.

The UK Smoking Report produced by health service provider Now Patient crunched the numbers and found that Ealing is among the leading boroughs where people are less likely to be smoking and to die of smoking.

In Ealing, 9.2% of the population are smokers and is the second lowest London borough after Richard Upon Thames which is the also the top place for least smokers at 5.9%. The top place for smokers nationwide is Kingston upon Hull with 26.1 of its population smoking.

When it comes to deaths per 100,000 of the population, Ealing is also in the lowest top 10 of the nation with 125 people dying due to smoking. Nearby borough Harrow tops the least deaths with 103 per 100,000 of its population. The top place for deaths caused by smoking is Glasgow city with 509 people out of every 100,000 dying from lighting up.

One ex-smoker told EALING.NEWS: “It’s easier now than ever to give up smoking and there’s lots of free support out there. My local GP provided lots of information and helped. So I think here in Ealing there is good support. I stopped smoking five years ago and feel so much better. I would urge anyone to do the same. It’s good for your health and also your wealth.”

In Ealing, West London NHS Trust provides a smokefree service to residents to help them with their smoking habits. Click here to find out more.
