GP practices and pharmacies
You can get NHS stop smoking support at more than 50 GP practices across West Sussex. See this list of GP surgeries offering stop smoking support. You can also get stop smoking support at any of the pharmacies listed here.
If you would like to make your quit attempt at your GP surgery or at a participating pharmacy, either phone or drop in to book an appointment to talk to the trained advisor.
These stop smoking services are free. They will advise on suitable medications to help you quit.
It is a fact that you are four times more likely to be a successful quitter if you have professional support from an advisor, compared to trying alone.
How long does a course of treatment last?
Any treatment will be explained in detail by a health professional. However, courses of NRT or varenicline (Champix) generally last about twelve weeks, and Zyban nine weeks.
How much will advice and treatment cost?
NHS services are free. Any treatment (NRT, Zyban, Champix) is available on prescription so you only pay the prescription charge. If you don't pay for your prescriptions then treatment is free.
