Stoptober, the 28-day stop smoking campaign is back from 1st October and it’s an ideal time to start thinking about promoting Stop Smoking services.
Public Health England have a number of free resources available to order and download, including posters, leaflets and wheels. Use these to create an eye catching Health Promotion Zone to encourage people to stop smoking. The resources can be ordered through this LINK.
There’s also a recently published document available from PHE with guidance about Stop Smoking options. This document can be accessed HERE.
The ‘Stoptober’ home page on the NHS website also contains some really useful resources, like a free app, a Facebook support group and a daily email support service, to name just a few. You can find them all HERE.
We hope your pharmacy staff will find these resources useful for promoting this important health campaign.
