Free NHS Support for Carers to Quit Smoking

Did you know that you can get 12 weeks free Nicotine Replacement Treatment (NRT) and telephone support to help with quitting smoking?

  • As a carer looking after your own health and wellbeing is important and becoming smoke-free can give you the extra energy you need.
  • It will also leave you with extra money in your pocket to enjoy some of the things in life that really matter to you.
  • No need to travel to appointments and flexible times for phone calls to fit in with your caring responsibilities.
  • You will get a call to arrange your first telephone appointment with your advisor to discuss options for NRT products or medication, plus advice to help with any cravings during your quit.
  • There will also be ongoing telephone support from a trained advisor to help you to stay focussed on your goal and to talk through any challenges along the way.

Research shows that you are 3 times more likely to quit smoking with a combination of NRT products and personal support in place.

A ydych yn Ofalwr?

Are you a Carer?  Let us know

 A Carer is someone who looks after a partner, relative or friend who cannot manage without help because of illness frailty or disability, you may or may not live together.

Beth y gallwn ei wneud i helpu?

Mae'r feddygfa'n cadw rhestr o'r cleifion hynny sy'n ofalwyr ac sydd wedi cytuno i fod ar y gofrestr. Mae'r gofrestr yn galluogi'r feddygfa i roi gwybodaeth i ofalwyr am gymorth a help lleol a chenedlaethol. Gallwn hefyd drefnu atgyfeiriad at y Gwasanaethau Cymdeithasol ar gyfer Asesiad o Anghenion Gofalwr ac at asiantaethau gwasanaethau gwirfoddol eraill, os oes angen.

 

Sut y mae cofrestru fel Gofalwr?

Registration forms are available in the surgery, downloadable from this page or you can speak to any staff member. Forms are also available from other voluntary organisations.

Jayne Davies is our Practice Carer’s Lead and you can ask to speak to her by telephone on 01550 720648 .

Applying For A Carer's Grant.

Beth yw'r Asesiad o Anghenion Gofalwr?

A Carer’s Needs Assessment is your opportunity to tell Social Services about the things that could make caring easier for you and it is an assessment of your needs, not those of the person you are caring for. Every Carer is entitled to an assessment and when you register with us as a Carer, the practice will offer you the chance of a referral.
