Virtual support to quit smoking
Emerging evidence from China has revealed that smokers with COVID-19 are 14 times more likely to develop severe respiratory disease. Smoking tobacco is known to damage the lungs and airways causing a range of severe respiratory problems. The evidence clearly shows COVID-19 virus attacks the respiratory system, which explains why smokers are at greater risk.
One You Plymouth continues to offer FREE smoking cessation support virtually and via telephone – please call 437177 for support.

BNF Healthy Eating Week 2020
Due to the escalating coronavirus situation, government advice for home working, and school closures around the UK, the BNF have taken the difficult decision to postpone BNF Healthy Eating Week until September 2020.
What is BNF Healthy Eating Week?
BNF Healthy Eating Week is a dedicated week in the year to encourage organisations across the UK (including workplaces, universities, and schools) to focus on healthy eating and drinking, and physical activity, and celebrate healthy living.
At the heart of BNF Healthy Eating Week are five health challenges
Eat more wholegrains
Vary your veg
Be mind kind
Organisations taking part in BNF Healthy Eating Week usually focus on one of the challenges each day, but it’s up to you to decide what your organisation will do and when. Some organisations focus on just one challenge throughout the week whereas others take on all of them!
