Pharmacy stop smoking service

Please phone your preferred pharmacy initially to check how they are currently offering support.

Local pharmacy stop smoking services are free, friendly and can massively boost your chances of quitting for good. You're three times more likely to quit with support and nicotine replacement therapy (NRT).

The pharmacies listed offer this service to anyone who lives in Southampton or has a Southampton GP. You can contact them directly to chat through your options, no need to be referred. They can offer free NRT and support in person or by phone. They know it can be hard to quit and are there to offer you the latest help to support you and are e-cigarette friendly.

GP Surgeries

Some local GP surgeries now offer stop smoking support, please phone your practice to see what’s available.

Targeted Lung Health Checks

People aged 55 to 74 who are registered with a Southampton GP and are current or former smokers will be invited to have a lung health check. If you are eligible, look out for a letter in the post over the next few months inviting you to book your appointment. If you think you may be eligible and haven’t yet been contacted please speak to your GP. Stop smoking support will be offered as part of the lung health check.
