Giving up smoking is always beneficial to your health. Contents
Stopping smoking increases your life expectancy and helps improve your quality of life, not to mention making you wealthier as well!
It is never too late to stop and the NHS is here to help you.
Getting NHS support really works – it can be four times more successful than going it alone (cold turkey) and it’s completely free of charge. So why not try it? You have nothing to lose.
Be Smoke Free
This is the service we recommend to our patients and is free to everyone. You can arrange an appointment without having to see a doctor.
If they recommend medication or patches to help you stop then we will prescribe them for you (according to your agreed treatment plan).
Visit the Be Smoke Free website for more information about the service, or request an appointment.
E cigarettes are marketed as a cheaper, safer alternative to conventional cigarettes. As they do not produce smoke, research suggests that electronic cigarettes are relatively harmless in comparison with smoking. To find out more have a look at the ASH Briefing on electronic cigarettes.
