A new stop smoking service has been launched in Barnsley which enables smokers looking to kick the habit to pick and mix their support.
Yorkshire Smokefree, which is run by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, offers quitters the chance to choose support in person, on the phone, or online using its innovative online support programme.
Smokers in Barnsley can choose to access just one of the methods of support or all three to increase their chances of successfully quitting. The service is free, flexible and run by NHS experts who have already helped thousands of people across Yorkshire to stop smoking.
Yorkshire Smokefree’s new online quit programme is available 24/7 from computers, phones and tablets, and allows users to create their own personal plans, set a quit date and chat online with qualified advisors.
Telephone support is available 7 days a week from qualified advisors who are on hand through extended opening hours to provide motivation and support either by phone or text.
Zoe Styring, service manager of Yorkshire Smokefree in Barnsley, said: “There are many reasons for you to quit smoking – not only is it beneficial to your health, you can also save thousands of pounds a year.
“Yorkshire Smokefree’s offer of tailored support to suit you makes it even easier for you to quit and make a positive change.”
