Specialist Stop Smoking Practitioner
Hi I’m Lorraine
I’m a Specialist Stop Smoking Practitioner for ABL Health. This has been my full time occupation in Oldham for the last 15 years.
I have worked across the whole borough of Oldham running groups, 1 to 1 sessions, home visits, telephone support and workplaces.
My background is working in primary care (GP surgeries) involving clinical audit, health promotion and clinical governance.
I have a BSC (hons) degree in Contemporary Health Practice – public health specialism
I believe I have the best job in the world, as I get to meet and speak to amazing people every day, and am privileged to play a small role in helping them believe in themselves and achieve a smoke-free life.
Outside of work I enjoy being a grandma to a 3yr old grandson. I get to look after him every week for 24 hours so we plan weekly adventures along with our black 5yr old Labrador Ted. We seem to be the entertainment and get in to trouble wherever we go…I’ve no idea why!!
