Description

The service to be provided is a Level 2 Stop Smoking Service which involves multi-session interventions with a total potential client contact time being a minimum of 1.5 hours from pre quit preparation to 4-weeks post quit. This will involve offering weekly support to individuals committing to quit smoking from their quit date until they have been quit for 4-weeks or until they relapse, if this is less than 4-weeks after the quit date.

This service allows the Stop Smoking Advisor at the pharmacy to supply a client with nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) or to refer them to the GP if bupropion or varenicline is considered more suitable for the patient.

The service may be offered to anyone over the age of 12 years.
