Smoking and weight management

Medical evidence unreputedly confirms that stopping smoking and managing your weight is good for your health.

If you are a current smoker and would like to stop,  your local pharmacy can help and support you with this. They provide nicotine replacement therapy and support all free of charge.

Also it is well recognised that if your Body Mass Index (BMI) is over the recommended level, any weight reduction is beneficial.

If you would like to lose weight, you can make an appointment for an initial health check with the Practice Nurse. Further advice can include creation of a healthy living plan and information on diet.
