Launch of weekly smoking cessation drop-in at Western Isles Hospital Diabetes Centre

Smoking Cessation Drop-in Clinic PosterSmokefree Hebrides will be providing a Smoking Cessation drop-in service at the Diabetes Centre at Western Isles Hospital from Friday 30th October 2015.

The service will be launched at 12 noon on the 30th with the drop-in service open for 2 hours on this date.  The drop-in service will be open 10 am – 12 noon every Friday thereafter.

This service is primarily for Diabetes Centre service users, however the Smoking Cessation Advisors will also welcome hospital staff, patients and the general public.

Hospital staff and patients are welcome to pop along on Friday 30th October from 12 noon for an informal chat about the new Smoking Cessation drop-in service or if you are wishing to make a quit attempt you can speak to a Smoking Cessation Advisor for specialist advice.  Making an attempt to quit with the support of a specialist smoking cessation service increases your chances of success four times.

Information will be available about:

  • The support Smokefree Hebrides can offer.
  • Nicotine Replacement Therapy (available without prescription).
  • Champix (available on prescription only).
  • Zyban (available on prescription only).
  • Carbon Monoxide testing.
  • The benefits to quitting.

We look forward to welcoming you along.

This is a drop-in service so there is no need to book an appointment.  If you prefer, appointments can be made at a mutually convenient time and place.
