Smokefree City & Hackney is the stop smoking service for anyone who lives, works or studies in the City of London or Hackney (or who is registered with a City of London or Hackney GP).

Research shows that smokers are three times more likely to quit with support and medication compared to quitting on their own. Smokefree City & Hackney is an NHS service, providing free one-to-one stop smoking support. The service works with local pharmacies to provide stop smoking medication (free to those who don’t pay for prescriptions).
