Look out for our health promotion texts

We are working with researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) to send patients text messages that promote the use of NHS SmokeFree or Drink Free Days apps.

Apps have the potential to help people quit smoking or reduce their drinking without fear of judgement, and with relatively little cost and time for both the patient and the NHS.

Patients will also receive a text message containing a link to a UEA survey where they can tell us their views about the health promotion text messages.

Patients who complete the UEA survey can choose to enter a prize draw for £250 high street vouchers.
