Stop Smoking Support

The Stop Smoking Team can provide training for clinical and/or non-clinical optical practice staff to equip them to effectively sign post smokers to specific smoking cessation services. The Team can visit you in your practice and deliver a short presentation that will train your staff to help smokers access the right support to achieve a healthier lifestyle and cut their risk of avoidable sight loss. Please contact James Curtis at for further information.
