Smoking Cessation

Our doctors and nurses are delighted to help people who have decided to quit smoking. About 40% of smokers will die from a smoking-related condition, so you know that stopping is one change that will make a big difference to your life.

Patients will see health benefits within days, such as improved taste and smell, while important benefits, such as lower risks of heart attack, stroke, lung cancer and improvements in breathing will happen in the first year or two.

Your GP will probably have been chasing you to stop smoking if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, circulation problems or history of stroke, heart attack, angina, asthma or chronic lung disorders.

If you are serious about giving up smoking and want advice, help or support we normally refer patients to Drybrook Pharmacy where this service if offered.

If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a smoking review on a regular basis please use this form.
