Stop Smoking Using a Clinical Evidence Based Programme

GoSmokeFree is a fully supported stop smoking programme available at participating pharmacies.

The programme begins with a pre-quit assessment where a smoker’s readiness and motivations to stop smoking is determined and a quit date is set, followed by four once a week, one-on-one sessions with a Nursing Sister who is trained as a GoSmokeFree advisor.

The follow up sessions are designed to provide support and guidance along the GoSmokeFree journey to triple your chances of success.
