Give up Smoking

Date created: 6/23/2020
Some of our services have changed the way they are delivered and accessed during the COVID-19 outbreak, to prioritise the safety of staff and members of the public. Find out more on the changes to health services webpage.

Kick the habit

If you live, work, or study in the City and are looking to quit smoking, read the Pharmacy Services section below, or speak to your GP or pharmacist.

As of 30 September 2020 the existing Stop Smoking Service has paused temporarily. The City of London Corporation aims to better meet the needs of residents and City workers and will be completing a consultation as part of the service redesign.

More information will be provided in due course. If you would like to be contacted as part of this process please email the Commissioning Team.

Pharmacy Services

Boots are able to provide the following services to City residents and workers who want to kick the habit:

  • A free online consultation through Boots online clinics. If the treatment is deemed suitable for you, you’ll get access to a starter pack, including Champix
  • Direction to NHS resources
  • NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy)

If you usually pay for your prescriptions some of these services will come at a cost.

You will be eligible for a free treatment plan/starter pack if you don’t usually pay for your prescriptions.
