The aim of the Service is to provide one-to-one Stop Smoking Behavioural Support which complies with best practice and evidence based stop smoking treatment.
Smoking is one of the most significant contributing factors to low life expectancy, health inequalities and ill health. Helping smokers to quit is a key priority within wider tobacco control national and regional strategies.
- Behavioural support will be provided for up to 12 weeks and available to individuals aged 12 and over that reside or work in North Tyneside.
- The Service will be accessible to all and will take account of protected characteristics, to meet legal obligations relating to the Equality Act (2010).
Patients must be motivated to stop smoking and receive behavioural support from a trained Stop Smoking Advisor, before vouchers of recommendation for stop smoking medicines can be issued.
Advisors will enable access to NRT using the NRT Voucher of Recommendation. This voucher can be redeemed at community pharmacies in North Tyneside.
Advisors will enable access to Varenicline using the Varenicline Voucher of Recommendation. This voucher can only be redeemed at selected community pharmacies in North Tyneside.
