Here at Choppa Vapes we have always aimed to support our local emergency services and healthcare professionals, the fewer people smoking the better for everyone!
Leading the way on this change is of course our very own healthcare services, to ensure that we are doing everything we can do to support this change, we are proud to announce that Choppa Vapes are one of the first to have partnered with the NHS & Unite the Union to provide exclusive discounts and advice to our key workers.
As we all know smoking remains the largest single risk factor for death and years of life lived in ill-health and is a leading cause of health inequalities in England and in other parts of the world.
Alternative nicotine delivery devices, such as nicotine vaping products, could play a crucial role in reducing the enormous health burden caused by cigarette smoking.
English stop smoking services data has stated that Quit rates involving a vaping product were higher than any other cessation method in every region in England.
An ASH survey of tobacco control leads found that only 11% of local authority stop smoking services offered vaping products to some or all people making a quit attempt. This is rapidly changing as more studies are conducted into the safety and efficacy of vaping as a smoking cessation device. Studies have shown that making the switch to vaping is a minimum of 95% safer than smoking.
This study recommended that local authorities should continue to fund and provide stop smoking services and all stop smoking services should have a consistent approach to using vaping products.
The government has a target of a Smoke-Free 2030 and tobacco manufacturers are having to take drastic action to reduce the sale of tobacco-based products. This government level push is driving the sale of tobacco products down, this is leading to a rapid uptake in the use of vaping products as the most effective way to quit.
To access these exclusive discounts and offers NHS workers will be able to use the link directly available on their local intranet, or any Unite union members will be able to access the discount through their Unite discount app/ website.
We will be appearing on the Blue Light Card Scheme soon! Keep your eyes peeled for the latest news on this!
