Smoking Cessation Services in Harrow – have your say

Harrow Council is currently running a consultation regarding its smoking cessation services. One of the ways it is proposing to save money is by ending its work to help people in Harrow stop smoking. This includes the following services:

  • Commissioned and Specialist Stop Smoking Services
  • Training on Tobacco and Smoking Cessation
  • Campaigns to raise awareness of the harm of smoking, promote attempts to quit smoking and stop young people from smoking
  • Stop Smoking expertise for businesses, professionals and partners
  • Work to tackle the proliferation of illegal tobacco and the growth of shisha

You can read more about the consulation on the Harrow Council website, including links to respond to the consultation and sign up for notifications about it. The consultation ends on the 3rd of November so make sure you respond before then. A local doctor has also set up a petition to save these services, which can be found on the Change.org website.

If these services were to end, people wishing to stop smoking would need to get help via their GP, pharmacy or other national, charitable or commercial services. Two online services that may be of use are Quitza, a social network for people quitting smoking, and Freedom From Smoking, an online programme of support through learning modules and message boards.
