Northamptonshire Stop Smoking Service is still operational during COVID19. Please contact our Health Care Assistants or Practice Nurse to refer you.
The practice is active in encouraging patients to stop smoking and participates in the Northampton PCT Stop Smoking Campaign. The Practice Nurses see patients by appointment to deal with smoking cessation. They provide advice, resources such as leaflets and aids and subsequent follow up appointments as well as prescribing Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT).
Support can also be accessed via a drop in style service at one of the PCT’s specially trained pharmacists in Northampton where information, support and NRT are available.
