As GPs, we have a duty of care for your health and well being, and as I am sure you will know, quitting smoking is the single most important act you could take to improve this.
We understand how difficult it is to stop smoking; many smokers don't choose to continue with their habit, they carry on because they can’t seem to stop. Perhaps this applies to you or maybe you have tried
Stop smoking services have been shown to give you a four times better chance of successfully quitting and here at Goldenhill Medical Centre we provide a friendly and very supportive service designed to give you the assistance you need.
This includes counselling sessions at which we can provide advice, guidance and tips for success and on-going support to keep you motivated
The negative effects of smoking get a lot of publicity; what is less widely reported are the substantial benefits to your health which can be measured from the very first day you are smoke free. In addition you will save money; even a 10 a day smoker will save around £90 per month which adds up to over £1000 in a year.
I hope that you will seek the help available to you at our stop smoking clinic. Please call the surgery for more information.
