Pharmacy stop smoking service

The pharmacy offers a stop smoking service with our qualified smoking cessation advisor who is qualified with the NCSCT and can offer the service in specialised areas including smoking cessation during pregnancy, and smoking cessation in patients with poor mental health and well being.

The smoking cessation service usually involves a 12 week course, where you will be provided with weekly or fortnightly appointments, carbon monoxide monitoring and all the nicotine replacement therapy you need to enable a successful quit.

The quit attempt is tailored to the individual, and is adapted as you move through the process of quitting. Benefits to giving up smoking are seen as quickly as 20 minutes after your last cigarette, so its never too late to quit.

All appointments are confidential and take place in the pharmacy consultation room.
