Stoptober Awareness Month


Its been an exiting start to the month with lots going on! Flu vaccinations are at the front of everyone’s mind, but we must not forget the health awareness focus for October; quitting smoking and the health benefits associated with it. Stoptober is a fantastic initiative, that supports and encourages people who want to quit smoking for good and get them on to the smoke free road to better health!

Did you know we have a stop smoking specialist here at Greenway? She is ready and waiting to support you through your smoke free journey! Weekly appointments with her for moral support, advice and guidance, along with nicotine replacement supplies. Mo Walmsley has successfully helped many of our patients to stop smoking! Why don’t you join the growing list?!

Mo has been out and about in the waiting room, with a very cheery smile, talking to patients about how she can help them and the benefits of quitting. The service is FREE of charge and you do not need to speak to your GP before booking an appointment with her. 

Call Reception on: 0117 9598939 and book an appointment with Mo to help support you through the process.
