Walk Your Way To A Brand New You

If you’re ready to stop smoking, take the next step...put your best foot forward and head off to your nearest Walk In Clinic which can be found in various different locations across Hull and the East Riding.

The Hull and East Riding Stop Smoking Service, part of City Health Care Partnership CIC, are ready to support you all the way.  Maxine Wrightson from the service explains, "We've listened to what local people have had to say and have re-launched our Walk in Clinics, making it easier than ever before to achieve a smoke free future.  Sessions now run across different times of the day with both evening and weekend times available too".

Most people lead extremely busy lifestyles and the Walk In Clinics are designed to work alongside your current demands.  You don’t need to make an appointment, you literally just walk in and access one to one support, information, help and advice. Each session lasts approximately 15 minutes per week for 6 weeks and includes practical help with FREE nicotine replacement products like patches and gum.

Maxine adds "The Walk In Clinic at Health Central, St Stephens on Ferensway in Hull, for example, is ideally situated for those who work in Hull City centre". 

The clinic is open Monday and Wednesday from 9.30am until 8pm, on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9.30am until 5.30pm, and on Saturdays from 10am until 3pm. Wherever you are, if you’ve made the decision to quit, you can start to walk your way to a healthier new you.

Steven Mottershaw, who provides one to one help at the Clinic says; “I’ve often heard people say that they’d love to quit smoking but that they’re just too busy. The Walk In sessions are so convenient and designed to perfectly fit into today’s hectic lifestyles.  Sometimes going to a group session can be time consuming and being able to have the one on one support that we offer is so important.  They’re really informal so I would urge anyone that wants to quit to pop in and see what it’s all about”
