Since 2004, NHS Herefordshire has encouraged community pharmacists to offer smoking cessation ('stop smoking') advice and support. Since then many people have used this service in order to stop smoking.
This pharmacy based service offers an alternative to potential quitters, outside of normal GP surgery times and often no appointment is necessary. The attached sheet shows those pharmacies which provide support for people considering stopping smoking and an intensive support programme for patients at times to suit. If you are exempt from paying prescription charges then there will be no charge for this service.
