Our new Better Health Quit Smoking Stoke-On-Trent service will support pregnant women, their family members and people who have a moderate or severe mental health illness. It is available for those who live, work or have a GP in Stoke-On-Trent.
The service forms part of the government’s ambition for England to be smokefree by 2030. Research has shown that smokers are four times more likely to quit for good by using their local quit smoking support service.
Personal quit plan
Local residents will be able to self-refer on the Quit Smoking Stoke-On-Trent website and can also be referred by their local health professional. Participants will receive 12 weeks of support from a qualified health coach. Pregnant women can additionally receive support for up to 12 weeks post-partum. The support will be available through Microsoft Teams and face-to-face meetings.
Health Coaches will help the participants develop a personal quit plan, where they’ll set a quit date and discover which quitting aid would suit them best. Topics taught during the course include advice on how to cope with stress or the unexpected and practical ways to improve stress and wellbeing.
We are eager to get to work supporting some really important priority groups to quit smoking for good.
