Smoking Cessation Clinic - SLaM NHS Foundation Trust
About this service
The tobacco dependence clinic provides support and treatment for people (16+ years) who want to stop smoking. The clinic helps people with severe tobacco dependence, tobacco-related disease, or mental health co-morbidities, who are likely to require more intensive and specialist treatment, or who have made multiple attempts to quit.
The clinic was established 40 years ago and was highlighted in the UK Government’s White Paper on Smoking in 1998. The clinic’s treatment approach, now nationally and internationally known as the Maudsley Model, was identified as a model of good practice. All smokers are assessed for their suitability to use approved nicotine replacement therapy, including patches, lozenges, gum, nasal spray, inhalator, sublingual tablet, varenicline (champix) or bupropion (zyban), to help relieve nicotine withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
