Stopping smoking for just 4 weeks reduces your chance of getting a chest infection or wound infection and increases your chances of being able to get home sooner after your operation healthy and well.

We know it isn’t an easy thing to do but there is help available.  Look at the NHS choices website which can be found to the left of this page, or ask your GP or the pre-operative assessment team to refer you today!
