Smoking Cessation Clinic
A weekly clinic held on Monday afternoons at the GP Clinic. This clinic is using a thoroughly researched method of helping people reduce or quit smoking. It works on the basis that every smoker who wishes to reduce or quit has the right to quality, individualised treatment based on the latest research. Everyone is different in how they break down nicotine in their bodies so the treatment needs to be based around the individual. People are encouraged to choose their own “quit date”. A multidisciplinary approach is available based on each person’s situation and wishes. To make an appointment for the smoking cessation clinic call the GP Clinic on 24134.
