Smoking is still
the greatest single cause of avoidable illness and premature
death in the UK. We appreciate how hard it can be to give
up, but your health matters, and that's why our Smoking
Cessation Advisors will support and motivate you through
possibly, the most difficult challenge of your life.
Our Smoking Cessation Advisors are accredited pharmacists
and trained Senior Medical Assistants who attend regular
training sessions to ensure that we, at Britannia Pharmacy
can provide our patients with the highest level of care
and support at all times. This service is provided in
all our pharmacies.
Your personal advisor will sit with you and evaluate
your condition and design a personal 'Quitters Plan',
which will be monitored and modified as the course progresses.
The course which can last between 6 to 12 weeks will
include weekly or 2 weekly appointments with your advisor
in the privacy of a private consultation room. Your
advisor will recommend and prescribe a course of Nicotine
Replacement Therapy (NRT) most appropriate for you i.e.
patches, gum, lozenges, inhalators or nasal sprays.
If you are exempt from prescription payments there will
be no charge for this service, otherwise the normal
prescription charges will apply for any products that
your advisor prescribes for you. Please note, there
is no charge for the counseling service itself.
If we can help you give up, please contact
us or speak to our pharmacist at your local Britannia
Pharmacy branch directly.
