Smoking Cessation

Are you a smoker? Have you ever considered giving up and have not had the will power? Well now is the time to make an appointment to see the practice nurse about smoking cessation. Initially you will be asked to complete a self assessment to find just how motivated you are. At your appointment you will be given a carbon monoxide check and assessed for your suitability for nicotine replacement. You will be monitored at regular intervals until you reach your goal.

The Practice offers advice and assistance to everyone seeking help to stop smoking. Please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse who is a qualified Smoking Cessation Adviser and can advise on the options available to you and obtain a prescription from the doctors for any medication required to help you to quit, if deemed appropriate.
