stop smoking clinics

Our stop smoking services are free, friendly and can massively boost your chances of quitting for good.


You will normally be offered a one-to-one appointment with an adviser. Please ask reception to book one today with our HCA or Nurse.
At your first meeting with an adviser, 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.


At your first session, you'll also discuss NHS-endorsed stop smoking treatments available to help you. These are nicotine replacement products - including patches, gum, lozenges, inhalators and mouth and nasal sprays - and the stop smoking tablets Champix (varenicline) and Zyban (bupropion).

Since early 2016, cases of measles have been confirmed across London and the East of England, This programme was introduced in April 2013 to immunise patients over the age of 16 years who are not fully vaccinated. Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can be very unpleasant and sometimes lead to serious complications. The MMR vaccine also protects you against Mumps and Rubella (2 other conditions that can have serious complications and health issues).
