Appointments are set for the following four weeks to support the smoker through the first month of quitting. The patient would be followed up at 52 weeks to see if they are still quit.
Smokers would be advised of addidational help to them including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) and Varenicline Tartate (Champix).
