#QuitforCovid and Stop Smoking Support in North Tyneside
If you smoke, you have an increased risk of severe illness with Covid-19. Your doctor would like you to stop smoking as soon as possible.

This line is open Monday – Friday between 09:00am – 5:00pm.
#QuitforCovid is a call to action. The term was coined by the NHS – from Dr Charlie Kenward, a GP at a Practice in Bristol, who explains: “I was in surgery talking to a mother with her 9-year-old son. She said she was worried about catching it because she is a smoker. I asked her why not quit? She looked at her son who looked back at her and nodded. This is something all smokers can do now so that’s why I’m asking smokers to #QuitforCovid.”
