Department of Health and Social Security seek a name for the future ‘Isle of Man Stop Smoking Service’? 30 May 2006

The Department of Health and Social Security Public Health Directorate, is calling upon the creative input of the community to assist with a new name for the future Isle of Man Stop Smoking Service.

The service is expected to be launched in October this year, and will offer regular support with a stop smoking advisor, combined with Nicotine Replacement Therapy. The service will include a GP Surgery and Pharmacy Scheme, a Specialist Pregnancy Service, and various community based initiatives.

Anita Imberger, Tobacco Strategy Coordinator said,

"We would like to ask the public for a catchy name for the future Island-wide service. We are hoping for something that’s positive, fairly short, and easy to understand that it’s about quitting smoking and getting help. We’re particularly keen to hear from those who might like help to stop smoking in the future, and what type of name or slogan would appeal to them."

The competition winner will receive a Manx National Heritage 4-site family pass (worth £25), a £30 voucher to spend at the picturesque Sound Visitor Centre and Café, and a £25 National Book Token. All entries should include contact details and should be emailed to or posted to the Tobacco Strategy Coordinator, Public Health Directorate, Crookall House, Demesne Road, Douglas IM1 3QA. The competition is only open to Isle of Man residents. All entries must be received by 19th June. The chosen name will be used on all publicity materials and paperwork designed for the service.
