Our doctors can give advice and encouragement to patients who want to quit smoking.
We understand quitting can be a difficult process.
Quit smoking medications are available by prescription at a reduced cost through the PBS. We can advise of the impact of quit smoking medications on other medications and provide support, information and a network of people to contact to improve success.
Medications and counselling support have been proven to increase the chances of success.
Support is also available from Quitline, and other local programs.
Quitting smoking is of particular importance to pregnant women and patients with chronic health conditions.
