Stopping smoking

Stopping smoking is the best thing that you can do for your health as you prepare to come into hospital.

Your treatment is more likely to be successful, and you will get better quicker.

Free NHS stop smoking support is available before you come into hospital, whilst you are here, and after discharge. You can also get eight weeks of nicotine replacement therapy products for a one-off prescription charge (or free if you don’t pay for prescriptions).

If you live in Southampton, you can get help to stop smoking from Southampton Healthy Living. If you live outside Southampton, visit the NHS Smokefree website and enter your postcode to find stop smoking services near you.

Please contact Southampton Healthy Living for more information and to book your appointment with an advisor.
