Help in my area

We've been helping local people to stop smoking for 19 years here in Bexley. Over 1,000 smokers sign up to quit with our specialist FREE stop smoking service every year. If smokers don't quite manage to stop the first time around they are encouraged to come back and try again. We're here to help and it’s much easier with the right support.  The Specialist Stop Smoking Advisors are experts in helping people to quit. The Team's success rate is consistently reported as one of the highest in London.  

Many people try to quit without any help at all but getting the right support will make success four times more likely. Why not start thinking about quitting by following this link to Public Health England's OneYou website: www.nhs.uk/oneyou - it's the best thing you'll ever do!


Advice and treatment to help you quit is available at selected Bexley GP practices where Specialist Stop Smoking Advisors from Bexley's Public Health Team hold weekely clinics in the surgeries and can:

  • Help work out the best way to quit for you
  • Test the age of your lungs, as well as your carbon monoxide levels
  • Help set your quit date
  • Help you resist cravings
  • Help you to quit for good
  • Advise on medication and give information about vaping
