Smokefreelife North Lincolnshire offers a FREE, flexible, three-tier support service to provide patients with a number of ways to become smoke free:
1. Face-to-face support: Weekly support with an adviser in a number of locations across North Lincolnshire. Patients are offered a free and direct supply of a range of nicotine replacement products for up to eight weeks within their core service (four weeks supply when seeing an adviser in a pharmacy).
2. Quitline, Text and Email support: Ideal for patients that do not want to attend face-to-face support. A trained adviser will be able to give the same behavioural support as the face to face service and give information about nicotine replacement products that are available to purchase.
3. Online interactive service: The YooQuit programme is a new online platform, combining video and audio messages to deliver behavioural support in the comfort of the patient's home.
Solutions 4 Health will provide GPs and practice staff with support in the form of resources (posters, leaflets and referral forms), free brief intervention training for all staff and in-house support if required. They will be contacting practices over the coming months to discuss their specific support requirements.
