We work closely with mental health services across Surrey through our stop smoking mental health lead, Greg.
Below is a video highlighting how exactly we do that as well as highlighting the different referral routes into our service.
After receiving a referral, our mental health lead, Greg, will contact the patient within 48 hours.
The first appointment is 30-minutes, followed up weekly 15-minute appointments
We make 3 contact attempts, which if unsuccessful will be followed by a text and in some cases a letter with our information.
The patient will receive free stop smoking nicotine replacement and behavioural therapy.
Every month we will report back to the respective mental health services about the patients smoking status to ensure a high quality & continuation of care.
This can filled in electronically and sent back to us at s.smoking@NHS.net
We offer free Level-1 Very Brief Advice training to ensure that you’re well equipped to raise the issue of smoking and how to support them in quitting.
