QuitPal comes to your smartphone
19 January, 2016
Free to download, QuitPal features a motivating 4 week quit programme with practical daily support and advice and real time information about nicotine replacement products, the amount of money being saved and positive changes in the user’s health.
QuitPal was created by stop smoking specialists at City Health Care Partnership CIC and gives people a range of practical and easy to use interactive tools to raise awareness about the benefits of being smoke free and how smoking affects your lifestyle, family, health and those around you.
Giles Bridgeman at City Health Care Partnership CIC said, “QuitPal is a fantastic new way of helping people to become smoke free. People’s lives are incredibly busy and they often don’t have the time to come to regular stop smoking services, so this will allow them to access the same information and support through their mobile phone at any time of the day or night in a place that suits them.
“We are committed to finding new and unique ways of communicating with people and are thrilled to be using smartphone app technology in this way. QuitPal enables people to get real-time interactive information in a practical way that is personalised and relevant.”
The introduction of ‘QuitPal’ follows the success of Smokefree’s online programme and SMS text support services and is yet another example of how we are making it easier to access stop smoking information and support.
Accessing QuitPal is FREE and easy and it is available for Android and Apple smartphone users: just search for QuitPal at Google Play (for Android users) and the App Store (for Apple users), download the app and then open and follow instructions.
