SYB QUIT Programme

The QUIT Programme is a new initiative which will transform the way tobacco addiction is tackled in our hospitals, offering patients who smoke access to effective treatments and support as part of their routine care. Training on smoking and tobacco addiction.

This page contains the resources you need to help you embed the treatment of tobacco addition into the routine care of all your patients. 

Based on a successful, evidence-based programme in Ottawa, Canada, QUIT has the potential to save thousands of lives and hospital re-admissions across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, as well as reducing health inequalities.
