Stop Smoking Service
Smokefreelife North Yorkshire - helping you to quit and stay quit
Stopping smoking is the single most important thing you can do to improve your health and wellbeing. Being smoke free will protect the health of people around you by reducing their exposure to second hand smoke. It will also save you money - the average smoker saves £150 a month when they quit!
We know that people have busy lives and that booking an appointment for things such as stopping smoking isn't easy. That's why, for many of the Smokefreelife clinics you don't need to have an appointment. You can drop in and see an approachable, fully trained advisor whenever you want at any of their clinics across North Yorkshire or at their mobile clinic. They also have a selection of clinics that operate by appointment only, please call them on 0800 246 5215 or 01609 663023 for more information.
Smokefreelife offers free, weekly one-to-one or group sessions over four weeks, as well as a free weekly supply of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT).
Their service offers out of hours support for people who work and accessible clinics within local community settings, including community centres, leisure centres and GP surgeries. They can give you the option of attending one-to-one sessions or group sessions combining fitness activities, receiving support via the Smokefreelife online platform from the comfort of your home or workplace or traditional one-to-one sessions with an advisor. If you have mobility problems and would prefer face-to-face support they are able to arrange home visits. Remember quitting is all about finding what works for you!
For more information or simply an informal chat about stopping smoking, please visit the Smokefreelife website or call the friendly team of advisors on 0800 246 5215 or 01609 663023 or text QUIT to 66777.
Support to stop smoking in pregnancy
Shocking statistics released by NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG show that on average, one in five women who gave birth at Scarborough Hospital in 2015 smoked during their pregnancy.
This has led to the CCG, working closely with midwives at the hospital and the local stop smoking service, to launch a campaign to raise awareness of the potentially life-threatening consequences that smoking can have on their unborn child, along with the range of support available to help them quit.
