Smokers urged to sign up to Stoptober

THIS October people are being urged to sign up for Stoptober and quit smoking for good.  Stoptober; the National 28 day quitting challenge from Pubic Health England; is back for the fifth year and Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) is encouraging people to join up and 'quit together.'  

In February 2014, CWP launched a new approach to nicotine dependency and was the first mental health trust in England to become smoke free. The Trust supports patients with a range of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) during their stay in Hospital, followed by on going support at home, to help people to stop smoking for good. Support is also offered to members of staff to help them to address their nicotine dependency. 

CWP's Director of Nursing, Therapies and Patient Partnership, Avril Devaney, has been nationally recognised for her work in addressing the harm to people with mental health conditions caused by smoking. She says:- "Smoking has been identified as the single biggest cause of inequality with people with mental illness dying 15 to 20 years earlier than the general population. Our aim is to help people to live longer, fuller lives by supporting them to address their nicotine dependency by helping them to access the right person centred support for them."  To sign up to the nation's biggest mass quit attempt, search Stoptober online or contact your local stop smoking service by calling for FREE on:- 0800 043 5134.
