Support to Stop Smoking
Merchiston Surgery is contacting all our patients, recorded as smokers, to make them aware of the local specialist support available to help individuals to stop smoking. If you have already stopped smoking, please inform the Practice and we will update your records. Although the Practice is currently unable to offer a stop smoking service, support and treatment is available locally from a qualified practitioner trained in smoking cessation at a number of different organisations including Health Centres and Pharmacies. Please see attached information regarding locations and clinic times.
You are four times more likely to stop smoking with our support and treatment than stopping smoking alone. Therefore, if you have decided to stop smoking please do not hesitate to contact the NHS Swindon Stop Smoking service, which is free on 01793 465513, text 07881 281797 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
