Want to stop smoking? Here's some help

Dear Castlethorpe residents

I am one of the two level 3 qualified specialist stop smoking advisors working from the public health team based in Milton Keynes Council. We offer one to one appointments in clinics across Milton Keynes with support and products to help anyone who wants to quit smoking. Our services of the 12 week programme are free to everyone and those who are exempt from prescription charges will also get products to help them quit for free (those that pay will pay just £8.05 standard prescription fee per fortnight for their products).

Products we can offer include Nicotine Replacement products such as:

  • Patches

  • Mouth sprays
  • Lozenges
  • Chewing gums
  • Inhalators

We can also prescribe a 12 week course of Champix or Zyban medication through the clients GP. These medications do not have any nicotine but work by reducing the p0ersoins desire to smoke by removing their physical enjoyment from smoking, and making it smell and taste unpleasant (therefore breaking the smoking cycle).
