Smoking causes one third of all cancer deaths in Northern Ireland and is our greatest cause of preventable ill health. It not only increases the risk of cancer for the smoker, but also for those around them.
Help to Stop Smoking
Our award-winning Stop Smoking Service is funded by the Public Health Agency (PHA) in GP practices, health and wellbeing centres, community, workplace and youth settings – including schools.
Delivered by specialist facilitators our service achieves quit rates that are consistently higher than the national average. NICE guidelines recommend a 35% success rate at 4 weeks – our Stop Smoking Support Services achieve 68%.
We offer an on-site, workplace service which includes provision of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) as well as behavioural support. This gives smokers easier access to a range of support in one place and lessens disruption to the working day.
We look at overcoming the fear of quitting, coping with cravings, managing stress, avoiding weight gain and adjusting to a better lifestyle.
