Military nurses win plaudits for smoking cessation initiative

  • Comment

An armed forces nursing team has won an award for its work on smoking cessation.

The British forces clinic in Naples, Italy, won three awards for its events on No Smoking Day last March – newcomer of the year, best community activity and best armed forces activity.

The clinic designed a children’s workbook for classroom use and co-ordinated a number of stop-smoking activities within the local British forces community. Staff were praised for their ‘great dedication and heaps of enthusiasm on a minimal budget’.

The award was accepted by the clinic’s senior nursing officer and stop-smoking co-ordinator, lieutenant commander Lorraine England of the Queen Alexandra’ Royal Naval Nursing Service.
