East Renfrewshire Smokefree Community Services

Weekday and evening Stop Smoking Support Sessions are run in local venues throughout the area. Some of these venues include:

  • Barrhead Health Centre
  • Clarkston Clinic

Stop Smoking Support Sessions are relaxed, informal and fun.

They last for 7 weeks in total, with each session lasting about an hour.

Quitting smoking with a support session is one of the best ways to stop successfully.

One-to-one support in exceptional circumstances or telephone support could be available if you are housebound.

If you are interested in attending a support session or would like additional information on the service available in the East Renfrewshire area, please contact 0141 577 4804.
