Stopping smoking has major health benefits.
If you would like to stop smoking, please ask your GP or nurse for advice. They may be able to prescribe you something to make it easier for you, and refer you to a smoking cessation counsellor.
Smoking Cessation Advice Clinics
Please feel free to participate in the Stop Smoking Programme currently running in the Hillingdon Primary Care Trust. A specially trained advisor will be able to offer you one to one or group support and nicotine replacement therapy on prescription. This is a free service to you and attending will not affect any medical care you may be having, your Doctor will be informed of your progress.
The appointments are limited at present so I would urge you to contact the free phone number: 0800 169 7541 to make an appointment for the Stop Smoking Clinic as soon as possible. These appointments cannot be made through the surgery telephone system.
Our Practice Nurse is trained to advise you on smoking cessation or can be seen at smoking cessation advice clinics.
