Stop Smoking Support for young people aged 16 and under

Our Advisors can see young people under the age of 16. We can support young people to stop smoking if they are aged 12 or above. This includes providing young people with the most suitable Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) and seeing them on a weekly basis to support them to stop smoking.

If the young person is 14 years or younger, we would require a parent or carer to be present and sign the consent form on their behalf. For young people aged between 15 and 16 we would undertake an assessment to ensure they understood and consented to the treatment we were offering.

All our advisors have undertaken Safeguarding Children training and follow Solutions 4 Health and North Yorkshire County Councils Safeguarding Policies.

We have clinics in various locations in North Yorkshire that are open outside school hours and we are working with practitioners from the Health Child Programme in North Yorkshire to offer support to young people in school where this is appropriate.

For more information please call 0800 2465215 or 01609 663023 and speak to a member of our team.
