Help from registered GPs and pharmacies

You can go to any of the listed pharmacies, but if you would like to attend a GP surgery you must be registered as a patient at that practice.

  2. Give you free nicotine replacement therapy to help you quit.
  3. Support you to set a quit date and agree treatment options
  4. Offer you weekly consultations, where you will be able to discuss your progress
  5. Monitor your carbon monoxide levels


You do not need a referral to access the services.

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.

Telephone Support

Stop Smoking London provides a special enhanced telephone service for anyone wanting to stop. This option may be easier, as you can access it anywhere and at a more flexible time.

You can call the helpline between 9am to 8pm (Mon-Fri) and 11am to 4pm (Sat-Sun), to speak to a specially trained advisor (stating that you are a London resident).
