It’s never been more important to quit smoking. Smokers are 14 times more likely to be effected by the severe form of Covid 19. 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. We can also offer support and advice to those wanting to switch to vaping( E cigs). During this time we are still offering our support via telephone, facetime or via an app.
This service is for smokers aged 12 years and over who live or work in Bath and North East Somerset. We also offer support to pregnant smokers through our Health and Pregnancy Advisors.
