1. You will be contacted immediately upon the referral being received to book an appointment to see a healthtrainer face to face or to join a drop in clinic.
2. During your first session your healthtrainer will set you a quit date and talk to you about maintaining the quit and how to set goals to ensure you achieve the stop smoking status.
3. You will be required to attend weekly to accept your NRT treatment and talk through with your healthtrainer any issues, concerns or barriers to fulfilling you’re quit.
4. You will be asked to give a CO reading which will determine your smoking status as a quit or non-quit. If you remain a non-quit you will be asked to continue to see your healthtrainer for a further 4 weeks and the support, guidance and motivation including NRT will be available.
5. If you achieve quit status at week 4, you will be offered further guidance, support and motivation to maintain the quit beyond the treatment intervention.

More then 10 million adults smoke cigarettes in Great Britain. We know that two thirds of current smokers would like to quit, is this you?
Unfortunately over half of all regular cigarette smokers will eventually be killed by their addiction. Every year over 100,000 smokers in the UK die from smoking related causes.
In Yorkshire and Humber we have the highest prevalence at 23%.
