Healthy Lifestyles Coventry

Around 10 million people in the UK smoke cigarettes and two thirds of those would like to quit.¹

Pharmacy stop smoking services provide patients who are committed to quit with regular support and motivational counselling alongside the use of Nicotine Replacement Therapy to increase the success of their quit attempt by 4 times compared to going it alone. The service is run by trained professionals face to face in the consultation room.

The pharmacy provides an easy to access setting for many patients at times that are suitable for their busy schedules increasing their success rates.
