Welcome to B&NES Stop Smoking Support

Our Stop Smoking Service is a free confidential service offering support and advice to local smokers who either want to stop smoking or to cut down the amount they smoke.

This service is for smokers aged 12 years and over who live, work or are registered with a GP in Bath and North East Somerset. We also offer support to pregnant smokers through our Health and Pregnancy Advisors.

More about us

Our service offers free local support to smokers aged 12 years and over through individual, face to face or telephone consultations. This support can include help to either stop smoking completely, cut down gradually prior to your quit date or cut down to reduce the harm from your smoking. When you get in touch, one of our friendly and fully trained health improvement practitioners will talk to you about your options and help you create a plan to reach your goal.

The specialist service runs a number of drop-in sessions in various community venues throughout Bath and North East Somerset – please see our list of clinics and drop-in times in the downloads section on the right of this page.

If you access support from the specialist Stop Smoking Service you are 4 times more likely to quit and stay quit.

We provide a range of stop smoking medications to help you to quit, including nicotine replacement therapy or Champix tablets (please note that prescription charges may apply).

You can choose to access support and advice to stop smoking at your GP practice or at most of the pharmacies in Bath and North East Somerset which have a trained advisor. Please contact us for details.
