Smoking Cessation

Thursday, April 11, 2019

At M&D Green we encourage our staff to continue with their training and development throughout the year.

Our most recent staff training event was sponsored by Pfizer and was on helping to stop people smoking through the smoking cessation service. The event was well attended by our staff and covered all aspects of how to help and support people that want to “quit the habit”. With a consultant cardiologist doing a presentation it allowed our staff to find out the impact that regular smoking can have on a person’s health and the benefits to them from stopping.
It also covered the fact that pharmacies are an accessible source for this service for many people and that patients may feel more at ease using their local pharmacy for this service.
This event was organised by some of our Pre-registration pharmacists, so thanks to them for doing this.
