What we have to say about your health and well being
Nov 2013
Stopping smoking More than 400 people quit smoking every month with the help of NHS counselling in community pharmacies. As well as being in a position to advise on the most appropriate form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT), they will be able to share with you the benefit of their experience and provide you with many hints and tips to help you on your way such as: 1.Fix a date to give up and avoid periods when you have a busy social diary where you may feel under pressure to smoke. 2.Let your family and friends know that you are serious about giving up smoking and ask for their support. This way they are less likely to smoke around you or to offer you a cigarette. 3.Get rid of all of cigarettes, lighters and ashtrays or anything else that reminds you of smoking. 4.Be aware of the sort of situations and places where you will be tempted to smoke and see if you can avoid them during the difficult first few weeks. 5.Resist the occasional cigarette and any temptation to convince yourself that ‘it is only just the one’. 6.NRT may be helpful as part of your quit programme and your community pharmacist will be able to advise you on the most appropriate type of NRT. 7.Reward yourself: for every day that passes without a cigarette reward yourself in some small way and treat yourself each week out of some of the money you will be saving. Using medicines effectively Did you know? In the UK, around 17 million people have a long term condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure or asthma. These conditions cannot be cured, but they can be controlled by medication. However it is estimated that up to half of all medicines are not taken as intended by the GP or pharmacist. This means that medicines are wasted and people are not getting the maximum benefit from them.

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
