Staff, service users, relatives, and carers, are all invited to take part in a range of activities for No Smoking Day on 13 March. The theme of this years’ No Smoking Day is “Swap Fags For Swag” to highlight the economic – as well as the health – benefits of giving up smoking.

There will be lots of activities to get involved in, and you can have your carbon monoxide levels checked and find out how quickly your levels can improve by not smoking a cigarette. There will be smoking quizzes, bingo, and smokers can swap their cigarettes for lottery tickets to be in with a chance of winning a prize. During the day there will also be an opportunity to find out more about how to manage on a budget with sessions from Occupational Therapy staff and a member of the Citizens Advice Bureau.

Throughout the day the Physiotherapy Team, in collaboration with the City Council Sport Development Officers, will be available to answer your questions on how exercise can help wellbeing, and advise on what exercise opportunities are available while in hospital, and what services there are out in the community. There are also gym taster sessions for those keen to get started.

The day’s activities are being organised by Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Foundation Trust Smoking Cessation Linkworkers, in partnership with Camquit, service users, Occupational Therapists, City Council Sport Development officers, Citizen Advice Bureau staff and My Time Active.
