Free printed, digital and social resources are now available via Public Health England’s Campaign Resource Centre to help health professionals encourage smokers to quit.

The new campaign materials include posters tailored for different health care settings, and toolkits with packs of materials ready-made for use. Digital and social resources include:

  • leaderboard digital banner (customisable versions available);
  • MPU digital banner (customisable versions available);
  • skyscraper digital banner (customisable versions available);
  • email signature;
  • digital TV screen;
  • organic Twitter and Facebook posts, with suggested copy (customisable versions available);
  • paid (sponsored) Twitter and Facebook posts;
  • gifs – either as a 15 second or 5 second version.

This year’s Smokefree Health Harms campaign features a new television advert, highlighting the dangers of tar in cigarettes. It shows how poisons from tar enter the bloodstream, spreading around the body within seconds and causing damage to major organs.

There’s also a PR video, featuring Dr Dawn Harper and Dragon's Den investor Hilary Devey, showing what happens to blood when smoking tobacco. This can be viewed on the NHS Smokefree YouTube channel.
