Smoking Cessation Support Programme

GRAHAM-Bam Healthcare Partnership (GBHP) has launched the third Smoking Cessation Programme in collaboration with Cancer Focus NI at its Royal Victoria Hospital Maternity site, where 15 operatives signed up to a 12-week programme to provide weekly support on site.

The service not only provides presentations and information on the dangers of smoking, but also helps smokers to quit by providing behavioural support and Nicotine Replacement Therapy.

The programme by Cancer Focus NI, which is offered free-of-charge to operatives and is delivered at the workplace, focuses on creating personal plans for success and looks at coping with cravings, managing stress, avoiding weight gain and developing a healthy lifestyle.

Cancer Focus NI has been working with GBHP for several years at Belfast’s Ulster and City Hospitals, helping numerous colleagues to quit smoking with a high rate of success. Already over 60 operatives from GRAHAM-Bam and from their supply chain have been successfully supported to quit smoking.
