A poster competition to raise awareness of Public Health England’s annual Stoptober Campaign was organised by School Nurse Emily Webster who has recently completed the Level 2 Intermediate Advisor Training “Helping Smokers Stop” run by Yorkshire Smokefree Kirklees.
Our Dewsbury stop smoking advisors have been out and about as part of Stoptober 2016 and had a fantastic day at Dewsbury Hospital recently.
Thanks to the initiative of our Kirklees adviser Joy, a new ‘smoke-free home’ discharge policy has been introduced for parents of ill children in the local paediatric ward.
We’re very excited to announce our new partnership with Huddersfield Town Football Club! By joining up with Huddersfield Town we are looking forward to helping as many people as possible in the area to stop smoking for good.
Smokers who decide to quit during Ramadan are often successful in their efforts. This is due to the willpower that is needed during the fast for four weeks, which can change your mind-set towards the addiction. If you can stay quit throughout the daylight hours - you know you can learn to live without cigarettes at all.
A new stop smoking service is launching in Kirklees which enables smokers looking to kick the habit to pick and mix their support.
