Get free, personalised support to stop smoking for good

6 March 2024

In the run-up to No Smoking Day this March, our local Stop Smoking advisors will be available at two community pop-ups to provide expert tips to help you or someone you know successfully stub out smoking.

Smoking remains the single largest preventable cause of death in England. Almost every minute of every day, someone is admitted to hospital with a smoking-related disease. 

It’s not just your lungs that are seriously affected by smoking. It is a contributor to serious cardiovascular diseases, like dementia, as well as various types of cancer. 

However, it’s never too late to quit smoking, and when you stop, there are almost immediate improvements to your health.

Did you know that you’re three times as likely to quit smoking for good if you get expert support from your local stop smoking service? 

This March, there are two opportunities available for you to speak to one of our friendly Stop Smoking advisors at community pop-ups.

Health Bus

On Tuesday 12 March, our Health Bus will be outside Sainsbury’s on Lower Richmond Road (TW9 4LT) from 10am to 5pm. 

Pop along to speak to one of our friendly Stop Smoking advisors about the free local support available to help you or someone you know stop smoking in the long-term, every step of the way. 

In addition, a local pharmacist will be on hand from 10am to 1pm to give out free blood pressure checks and healthy living advice. A social prescriber will available from 1pm to 5pm to chat about local activities available to support healthy, active lifestyles, and a representative of Thinking Works will be on hand to provide advice about maximising home energy efficiency. 

Twickenham Civic Centre pop-up

On Wednesday 13 March, No Smoking Day, our local Stop Smoking advisors will also be available in the reception area of the Twickenham Civic Centre to speak to provide supportive information and guidance to residents.
