Stop smoking service


Stopping smoking is one of the single most beneficial things that you can do for your health.

We know that quitting smoking isn’t always easy. People who receive support from their local stop smoking service find it easier to stop and are four times more likely to stay smokefree.

Our team of specialist advisors have lots of experience in helping people to quit smoking.

We have also made an NHS smokefree pledge as part of a national programme to help the whole NHS go smokefree.




COVID-19 Virus Notice

The Stockton Specialist Stop Smoking Service has adapted its ways of working in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have risen to the challenges that this has presented and looked at this as an opportunity to offer new ways to reach our clients.

We are proud to be able to offer access to our services by telephone, face-to-face consultation and also remote video consultations using the secure NHS Attend Anywhere video service.

Feedback that we have had from clients about the new ways of working have been really encouraging.

The Stop Smoking Service remains committed to providing help and support with your stop smoking treatment and will continue to do so.
