Islington resident testimonial

“I can say that regular fortnightly telephone calls were really helpful, and that due to my surgery I had limited options for nicotine replacement therapy and that we discussed that patches would be the best solution for me. Thank you so much for your support the last few months following my cancer surgery and my smoking cessation journey.

My Consultants are pleased I have kicked the habit finally. You were very kind and supportive throughout.”

Stephanie, 54 years, Islington resident
