Smoking cessation clinics are run by Dave Whorton at the Surgery on a Friday afternoon between 5:30-6:00pm.
Medications on offer include various forms of nicotine replacement therapy which are available on prescription for people who attend the clinic. These products reduce or remove the withdrawal symptoms and cravings which people usually experience when they stop smoking, and using them correctly doubles the chance of giving up smoking permanently.
Judith Mandale also sees patients who want to stop smoking at the Surgery.
Cumbria Stop Smoking Service also offer help and support to stop smoking. Call 01900 324222.
