Stop smoking

Stopping smoking improves your physical health, boosts your mental health and relieves stress and anxiety.

stop smokingIf you want to give up smoking, now is a good time to do it.

Smokers who are self-isolating and, therefore unable to go outside to smoke, should seek alternatives, such as Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) or e-cigarettes, to protect other people in their household.

Though we are unable to provide face-to-face consultations, we are offering weekly telephone support sessions, which include behavioural guidance, advice and supply of stop smoking medications and general support.  

Whether you're ready to give up or just want to see if this is the right programme for you, call us on 0800 169 7541 or 01895 207777 or email

No matter how long you have smoked for, quitting can help both your physical and mental health immediately. It has been proven that you are 4 times more likely to stop smoking with the support from a stop smoking adviser.

If you are ready to quit and are an eligible resident of Hillingdon, we can help.
