Services will be mainly offered over the phone during COVID-19. Please call or visit the website to arrange support.

Community Pharmacies

Did you know that you could access quit smoking support from your local community pharmacy? Pharmacies that are licenced to offer Level 3 smoking cessation support can offer one-to-one smoking cessation support as well as nicotine replacement therapy such as patches and gum. Those offering Level 2 support provide nicotine replacement therapy to those receiving behavioural support.

Find your nearest pharmacy


Community Pharmacy smoking cessation services will continue during the coronavirus outbreak but with some changes. Consultations will not be provided face to face in a consultation room but are likely to be carried out by telephone and Carbon Monoxide monitoring will not be taking place during the outbreak. Please talk to your community pharmacy team to agree appointment times for your telephone consultation and to then agree when your NRT will be available for collection. Community pharmacy teams are exceptionally busy and are facing unprecedented levels of demands for their services so please be patient.
