Here at the practice we are pleased to offer a stop smoking service for our patients.
It is now well known that smoking has a damaging effect on almost every system of the body, and is the largest single cause of death and disability in the UK. It has a number of adverse effects on oral health too. As one of the strongest addictions, most smokers will need some help in giving up for good. If at first you don’t succeed don’t despair. Many smokers will make several unsuccessful attempts before they finally quit. A range of options are available to give your willpower a boost.
We offer FREE advice and support from our qualified smoking advisors.
Alison is available by appointment. With flexible working hours to suit you.
We are also happy to offer advice over the telephone for extra support if you are tempted and need a coping strategy.
Our service is FREE to all patients
We can supply nicotine replacement therapy or medication such as Champix or Zyban which help stop the cravings for cigarettes. These cost a normal NHS prescription charge at the Pharmacy.
You are 4 times more likely to succeed in giving up smoking if you get help from a stop smoking service
