Smoking Brief Advice & Cessation Support – Once and For All are still taking referrals during Lockdown
Smokers are more at risk of contracting COVID 19 because of increased hand to mouth contact. Now may be a good time to link people to our regional Stop Smoking Support Service, Once and For All http://www.onceandforall.co.nz/ or Quitline www.quit.org.nz . Once and For All are offering a virtual service during Lockdown, and incentivize smokers to quit with $50 to those who are Smokefree at four weeks, or $300 to pregnant women. The attached info from WDHB for pregnant women includes useful information for all smokers. Hauraki PHO is currently sitting at 47% (Target 90%)for Brief Advice given to current smokers across all our practice partners. Please use any contact with patients to update smoking status and offer Brief Advice and Cessation Support
