NHS Stop Smoking Advisor training

The Essex Wellbeing Service can train your employees to deliver free workplace Stop Smoking Support.  What are the benefits?

  • Improved health
  • reduced sickness absence
  • increased productivity

Allowing your employees to access in-house Stop Smoking Support will mean:

  • higher uptake – it’s easier to access the support during a coffee break or lunchtime
  • you’re 4 times more like to quit if you access NHS Stop Smoking Cessation support

In order for your employee to deliver smoking clinics, we ask that they complete the NCSCT Practitioner training module available here and the Level 2 Smoking Cessation training delivered by EWS via Teams.  EWS will pay £50 for each 28-day quitter.
