Stop Smoking

Stop Smoking incorporates two separate services.

If you are interested in providing these services in your pharmacy please click here for information on what you need to do.


NRT Supply Level 1 Service

NRT supply services, often referred to as level 1, enable pharmacies to supply NRT to a client who has been issued a voucher by a Stop Smoking Advisor.

NRT supply services are commissioned in the following areas:

  • Calderdale
  • Kirklees


Stop Smoking Level 2 Service

Stop Smoking Advisor services, level 2, offer a client advice and on-going support in stopping smoking.  This service is commissioned by every area within West Yorkshire.  Only trained and accredited staff can provide Stop Smoking Advisor services to clients.  Not all services are open to any provider.  If you are interested in providing a stop smoking service contact the service lead for the area where your pharmacy is based.

Staff should attend an update/refresher Stop Smoking course on an annual basis and should retain evidence of attendance.

The National Centre for Smoking Cessation and Training http://www.ncsct.co.uk (NCSCT) is a social enterprise committed to supporting the delivery of effective evidence-based tobacco control programmes and smoking cessation interventions provided by local stop smoking services.   The NCSCT delivers training and assessment programmes, which may be useful for pharmacy teams providing level 2 services.
