NHS Stop Smoking Service
Our Stop Smoking Service is available at our Hillingdon branch, offered by our friendly Pharmacy team. With our support we can massively boost your chances of quitting for good.
Our Pharmacy team are expert advisers and will provide a range of proven methods to help you quit.
They’ll give you accurate information and advice, as well as professional support, during the first few months you stop smoking. Our consultations are one-to-one and in person, to help you get the best service possible.
Our team at Puri Pharmacy will make it easy and affordable for you to get stop smoking treatments, such as nicotine replacement therapy.
What happens in the first consultation?
At your first meeting at Puri Pharmacy, you will meet our Pharmacy team and you’ll talk about why you smoke and why you want to quit, as well as any attempts you’ve made to quit in the past. You’ll also be able to decide on a quit date.
You’ll be offered a breath test, which shows the level of carbon monoxide – a poisonous gas in cigarette smoke – in your body.
At your first session, you’ll also discuss stop smoking treatments available to help you.
These are nicotine replacement products, including patches, gum, lozenges, inhalators and mouth and nasal sprays.
