Stop Smoking

We are a completely smokefree organisation.

This will help us to provide a safe environment that promotes health and reduces harm for you, our patients and our visitors on all of our sites.

We can offer lots of support if you want to give up smoking.

Our stop smoking service has trained advisors who will offer free friendly support and advice to help you stop smoking. Your advisor can also recommend the most appropriate medication to help you deal with any cravings.

Stopping smoking for 28 days or more means you’re five times more likely to stop for good.

How we work

We run one-to-one sessions, support groups and drop-in sessions in a wide range of venues including GP practices, pharmacies and community centres in Northumberland. We also run a number of out-of-hours sessions for those who find it difficult to make sessions during the day as well as providing sessions in the workplace.

You can also be referred to our service by any health professional, or you can get more information at your GP practice or pharmacy.

Stop before your op

We encourage our patients to stop smoking before their operation and the sooner, the better. This helps to:

  • Reduce risk of complications and infections
  • Help the wound heal quicker
  • Get home earlier
