You can get help to stop smoking in the community.

How does it work?

In your regular one-on-one meetings at appropriate times and places, you and your Physician will work together to create a coordinated action plan.

You will be introduced to:

  • to get information and medication to stop smoking
  • help with prescription costs (if needed)
  • Advice, support and encouragement from your smoking cessation doctor

What to expect

The best way to quit smoking is support and medication, and the Solihull Stop Smoking service can provide you with both. Although it is natural to be nervous at your first meeting, you will see that we are a friendly and helpful team. It’s important to be completely honest with your smoking cessation practitioner, because that’s how we create your 12-week personal plan.

If you do not know which medication you want to take, your smoking cessation doctor will give you expert advice on nicotine replacement products, chewing gum and patches, as well as prescription medications such as Champix.

During each session, you will take a carbon monoxide reading, which is a quick and simple breath test and shows how much carbon monoxide is in your system. It’s really great when “non-smokers” go to sing and people tell us how good they feel – sometimes physically, sometimes financially as well as mentally.

Quitting smoking is not an easy task, but with the right support, medication and motivation from the smoking cessation team, we will give you the best chance to quit.
