"Know Your CO" (Carbon Monoxide)
Healthwatch Barnet is proud to partner with Public Health on a smoking cessation project. The "Know Your CO" project is a non-intrusive screening programme, designed to engage smokers in a quit attempt with the help and support of healthcare professionals.
The aim of the "Know your CO" project is to raise awareness about the harmful effects of smoking, but also exposure to CO can sometimes be a symptom of environmental factors such as faulty boilers or exhaust fumes from cars.
Healthwatch Barnet have been visiting many venues such as pharmacies, GP surgeries and Health Centres around Barnet to raise awareness about the CO levels in peoples bodies. We have successfully trained volunteer Healthcare Assistants on how to use the CO monitors and conduct the tests.
Anyone with a high CO reading are referred to the Smoking Cessation Advisor at each venue.
