Stop Smoking Services

Our practice records indicate that some of our patients are indeed smokers and we know that this carries health issues that could be significantly improved if you could stop smoking.

If you are no longer a smoker, please let us know next time you are in the practice and we can update our records.

Do you want to give up smoking? Have you been thinking about quitting? If so, do you know that at your local surgery you can get access to your local stop smoking service who have a proven track record in helping people to stop smoking and stay stop.

Whatever your choice, an adviser will see or contact you weekly and will give you support and licensed, regulated medication until you feel you are able to stay quit for good. (Max 12 weeks). Most of the people that the stop smoking service sees, stop smoking - why not join them?
