Description

Living Smokefree Service

The Counties Manukau Living Smokefree Service accepts both self-referrals as well as referrals from healthcare professionals.

Clients will first speak with the Smokefree Triage Service which is a one-stop-shop for all smoking cessation referrals in Counties Manukau. We work in partnership with community quit smoking services across the district to ensure people are offered multiple free, convenient and culturally appropriate options for ongoing support.

Referral Expectations

Our dedicated referrals coordinators will send an acknowledgment on receipt of a referral and will endeavour to make contact with clients within 3 working days.

The team will provide feedback to the health professional on the outcome of clients who consent, engage and have set a quit date.

We complete a first phone assessment to determine what type of support the client needs. We offer a range of free, evidence-based, 12 week programmes to ensure the client can choose the right support for their needs.
