You will also be protecting those around you from the harmful effects of secondhand smoke including children and those who are vulnerable.

Covid 19 Information
Smokers ages 12 and over who want help to quit, can self-refer for support by ringing 01744 371111 or complete the ‘contact us’ form here.
We will arrange a full consultation by an agreed method (usually by telephone) to assess and agree an individual plan to support you to quit. Smoking tobacco produces high levels of carbon monoxide which is inhaled directly into a smokers’ lungs and build up throughout the day. This increases the risks of developing smoking related illnesses. The good news is that quitting smoking stops this risk immediately and you will be free from CO within 24hrs after stopping. We can offer you a reading of your levels whilst smoking. If you would like to know your level of carbon monoxide (CO) please let the staff know and we will arrange to meet you face to face.
Paula ,28 “ I didn’t know that getting help to stop smoking would be this easy otherwise I think I would have quit ages ago!”
People who register with SMOKEFREE will continue to be supported throughout their quit attempt by an agreed method of contact i.e. telephone, text or video call. Access to nicotine therapies is easy, in most cases you will be given a code and all you need to do is show this your local Pharmacy and they supply what was agreed with your advisor.
Dave, 32 “ the support I’ve had has been great and fits in with my work commitments without having to allow extra time travelling to see my advisor-I’m now quit, and the regular contact and therapy keeps me going”
PLEASE NOTE our community-based drop-ins are not running at the moment but you will still have our full support by telephone or video calls. Face to face sessions can be arranged on request.
