No Smoking Day 2017 – 8th March 2017
As of this year, the British Heart Foundation have decided against running the UK-wide National No Smoking Day campaign. We believe that this significant opportunity to engage with smokers and encourage them to consider quitting is too good to lose. As a result, we have decided to join in with ASH Scotland's efforts to keep No Smoking Day alive in Scotland! Using the NHS Inform website, you can print off posters and other resources to use in your pharmacies along with hints and tips on how to make a success of both the day and the weeks leading up to it. Resources will be limited compared to previous years, but there's no reason that this should stop anyone from joining in!
The theme is "Feel like a winner!", and will centre around both the health and financial benefits to stopping smoking. Once the materials are available we will post them on our website, so keep an eye on our Latest News section!
No Smoking Day is always a fun and rewarding day, we encourage you to get creative and mention us @CPharmacyScot on Twitter or Facebook with details and pictures of your efforts so that we can spread awareness on social media and reach more smokers, showing what community pharmacy in Scotland can do for them!
