Stop Smoking

Help Me Quit is the brand that covers all NHS stop smoking services in Wales. Help Me Quit was established in 2017 to make it easier for smokers to access NHS stop smoking support. The Welsh Government has committed to reducing the number of smokers in Wales to 16% by 2020. Despite progress, there are still over 490,000 adult smokers in Wales.

Help & Advice for Ex-Services Personnel

Veterans NHS Wales was funded by the Welsh Government in April 2010. Each Local Health Board (LHB) has appointed an experienced clinician as a Veterans Therapist (VT) with an interest or experience of military health problems. This VT will accept referrals from health staff, GPs, veteran charities and self-referrals from ex-service personnel. The appropriate VT can be contacted by going to the Veterans Wales page on the Cardiff & Vale Local Health Board website and using one of the contact methods available, including telephone, email or fax. Appointments will be arranged as close to the veteran’s home as possible in a suitable NHS venue.

The service is not able to respond to emergency referrals. Veterans in crisis should contact their GP or the Out of Hours Service. There is a Psychiatrist on-call at all Accident and Emergency Units

Following the assessment the veteran may be offered treatment by the VT or referred on to other NHS teams or departments for further treatment. The VT will also refer to veteran charities for help with debt management, benefits and war pension/armed forces compensation claims as indicated.
