Anyone accessing the stop smoking pathway will undertake a telephone/virtual appointment, rather than the standard face to face appointment. We offer a 12-week intervention programme. An initial appointment will last for up to 30 minutes and during this time the Stop Smoking practitioner will gain some background information on smoking history, habits, motivation, challenges and work towards setting a quit date. Follow up appointments are 15 minutes either weekly or bi-weekly depending on need. We provide 12-weeks’ worth of NRT or medication. NRT is delivered by Royal Mail postage. Medication is prescribed, which will be provided through the GP or Pharmacy.
We offer evening appointments up to 8pm as well as Saturday morning appointments to suit a busy schedule. As well as our telephone support, you may be able to get help from your local pharmacy.
Once you’re signed up, we will give you a call as soon as we can. This initial call will just go
through some basic questions about the background and reasons for signing up, before looking to book your Initial consultation with the Stop Smoking Practitioner. After this, you will be supported by the Stop Smoking support for a period of 12 weeks.
