Appointment and walk-ins
If you are attending your GP surgery you will need to make an appointment. You do not need to make an appointment to be seen at a pharmacy.
If I go to a pharmacy will I receive an assessment on the same day?
Yes, if there's a stop smoking adviser available.
Does the service include group treatment?
No, all support is one-to-one.
Will I be expected to go into the pharmacy or my GP every week?
It is important that you come in at least once for a face-to-face appointment. Then the adviser can answer any questions and retest your carbon monoxide levels. Other appointments can take place over the phone if necessary.
