Smoking has many bad effects on health and increases the risk of many diseases, including lung disease, lung cancer, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, disease of the arteries of the legs, problems during pregnancy and death. We understand that giving up smoking can be very difficult and we offer support to our patients who wish to stop.
In Nottingham we have the new Stub It! Service at GP plus, who can offer support and guidance and advise on prescriptions for smoking cessation. If you would like to be referred, please speak to reception who can organise this for you.
