Caroline Eley of Leyes Lane Pharmacy has been announced as the runner up in The Advisor of the Year Awards 2013, an NHS initiative which recognises the success of healthcare professionals who provide smoking cessation services.
Caroline (pictured above) has provided a free NHS stop smoking service for the last two years from the pharmacy and out in the wider community in the Kenilworth area at places such as schools, youth clubs and community centres, and her success in helping people to give up smoking have culminated in this award. The free stop smoking service offers one to one support and motivation to give up cigarettes, and provides all of the NRT products which help people to do so.
Commenting on the award, Caroline said:
“I’m delighted to have received this award, and accept it on behalf of the whole team here at Leyes Lane Pharmacy. We’ve worked hard to provide an effective stop smoking service, and it’s been a pleasure to help so many local people to give up the habit. Of course, the pharmacy is the place smokers come to embark on their journey to quit, but the opportunity to spread the word further afield, and
particularly to young people, has been extremely rewarding. We look forward to helping even more smokers to give up in the future, and to continue highlighting the huge benefits of living a smoke free life to people throughout Kenilworth and the surrounding area”
