Stopping smoking isn’t just about will-power!
A bit of support can make all the difference. That’s why our Stop Smoking Service offers one-to-one support in a way that suits you and the changes you want to make. That includes in the evening, over the phone and on video calls.
GPs, pharmacists and community organisations can put you in touch with us and we also work closely with a number of local pharmacists to improve access to stop smoking support.
Stop Smoking Advisors
Our professional stop smoking advisers will help you understand what triggers you to smoke, how to cope with cravings and offer practical support with things like nicotine replacement options, so you can cut back, stop and make it stick.
Like stop smoking advisers, our health trainers will help you understand what triggers you to smoke, how to cope with cravings and offer practical support with things like nicotine replacement options, so you can cut back, stop and make it stick. Working with you closely for up to six weeks, Health Trainers can also help you make other healthy lifestyle changes at the same time.
Feel like there’s a lot you want to change so you need a bit more time?
Stopping smoking gets a lot tougher when it’s tied up with lots of other things going on in your life. That’s why our Living Well coaches can offer longer-term one-to-one support with a range of worries so you make weight loss lifestyle changes that last. This can include support with:
- reaching a healthy weight
- eating more healthily
- being more active
- giving up smoking
- drinking sensibly
- dealing with long term ill-health linked to everyday living
- feeling better about life
Working one-to-one or in a group, they can support you for up to a year – keeping you motivated and on track as you move towards a happier, healthier life.
When you get in touch we can make an appointment for you at one of a range of local community venues – all at a time and place to suit you.

Around two in every three mouth cancers are linked to smoking. And four out of five people have no idea what the signs and symptoms are.
Our Oral Health Team can offer you one-to-one support when you’re struggling with your oral health and can refer on to dental services in the community and at home.
They also work closely with health and care professionals so they can help improve oral health and spot the signs of ill health that first show up in the mouth.
