  • Kickstart Service Manager
    Paul Jackson

    Paul Jackson Kickstart Service Manager


    Paul has managed the Kickstart Stop Smoking Service since 2004. This followed running Stop Smoking clinics in Congleton as part of his previous post as Health Visitor. A friendly, approachable manager, but unfortunately an avid Manchester United fan!

  • Kickstart Service Assistant Manager
    Steph McCurrie-Winkler

    Steph McCurrie-Winkler Kickstart Service Assistant Manager


    Stephanie has been in her role as assistant manager since 2007. Training and service improvement are her main focus but she also enjoys supporting young people to quit. A great organiser and goes above and beyond her role – just don’t make her angry!

  • Kickstart Service Administrator
    Shirley Loasby

    Shirley Loasby Kickstart Service Administrator


    Shirley has worked in the NHS for 30 years and for the past 10 years has been Administrator for the team. She provides comprehensive administration support. We think Shirley is the Manager – don’t tell Paul though!
