Smoking Cessation

We provide NHS stop smoking services.

If you decide to give up, you will be seen on a one-to-one basis and will be offered appropriate treatment including nicotine replacement therapy, such as patches, gum, lozenges, microtabs, inhalators and nasal sprays.  

We can also prescribe bupropion (Zyban), a drug that reduces the craving for nicotine. This isn't for everyone as it can cause epileptic fits in people prone to them and can affect liver and blood pressure, so needs close monitoring. Some people do very well with the medication, so it's worth considering.  

There is also a recently introduced drug called varenicline (Champix), which blocks the effect of nicotine in the brain.  

Patients can book to see our nurse or one of the GP’s by calling the surgery

Diabetes

The practice provides diabetes checkups for all those affected by, or have a family history of diabetes. We are fortunate to be supported by the Lambeth Diabetes Intermediate Care Team to support the practice.
