To raise awareness of the FREE South West NHS local stop smoking service and educate smokers who want to quit, about the support available to them.
Over a 2 week period across 10 x local stations, presenter reads and promotional trails encouraged listeners to go to the station website and register a question to ask a Stop Smoking advisor. Advice advertorials were played out with a NHS Healthcare professionals from the station's local PCT, giving out a clear healthcare message as to why people should quit smoking in the new year. Each week there was also an NHS advice clinic broadcast during breakfast where the healthcare professional answered 3 listener questions that had been submitted either on-line or via sms.
The September 2011 was a great success and so they re-booked for Jan 2012 with thousands of listeners across the South West engaging with the stations and wanting to find out more.
