Stoptober campaign return

The NHS Stoptober campaign, a 28-day national stop smoking challenge running in October, is set to return again this year and pharmacies can now start ordering their materials to take part in it. The campaign will launch this year on 3rd September, encouraging people to be part of the challenge. Stoptober itself starts on 1st October.This year, Public Health England are again helping thousands of smokers to stop smoking with lots of free and effective support. Stoptober is a great conversations starter with smokers who may already be thinking of quitting. It gives pharmacy teams a way to discuss products, tailor advice and introduce smoking cessation services.

As usual, it will be supported by a high profile advertising campaign, and community-level engagement across England with pharmacies, employers and local authorities all getting involved to once again make Stoptober bigger and better this year.

Your pharmacy team can help encourage England’s smokers to quit, and join the thousands of other pharmacy teams already getting involved, by ordering the Stoptober toolkit free of charge from 0300 123 1019. The order line is open Monday to Friday, from 8am to 6pm, until 28th October 2015 or whilst stocks last.
