Telephone support

If you fit into the categories above, but are unable to attend the times of our clinics we also offer structured telephone support (evidence based counselling) to help you quit. In order to provide this telephone support we will need to take your carbon monoxide (CO) reading at your first session; this will be followed by 4 weeks of telephone support before we take another CO reading at your last session to verify your quit status.

Carbon monoxide is a poison that comes from anything organic that burns including tobacco. Therefore we record this level with a monitor at the beginning and end of our programme and it can be very motivating to see your CO level reduce after having completed the programme.

Call us to find out more about the telephone support we can give you to quit.
