Breathe is Camden & Islington’s stop-smoking service. It delivers a tiered model to ensure smokers receive the best support to help them stop smoking.

  • Tier 1 offers self-support through online and printed media to those smokers who want to stop smoking without face-to-face support.
  • Tier 2 offers brief support through a network of specialist stop-smoking advisors, working in GP practices, pharmacies and other community groups and organisations.
  • Tier 3 offers specialist support to highly addicted smokers who have made multiple attempts to stop smoking and can benefit from an intensive face-to-face intervention and longer term behavioural support.

Additional support is available for those who are housebound, cannot make it to face-to-face sessions and/or may find it harder to quit, such as those with mental health problems. Breathe specialists can see housebound clients in their home and also offer telephone support, with provision of Nicotine Replacement Therapy by post.
