Accepted Referrers

  • Any other health Provider
  • Anyone (The person being referred must give consent)
  • You or your Family/Whānau
  • Whānau

The TSSS team keeps referrers informed of a person’s progress. Email  for more information, phone 06 759 7314, 027 6432752, see the Facebook page taranakistopsmoking or ask your GP.


The Taranaki Stop Smoking Service (TSSS) is delivered by qualified Quit Coaches providing group programmes, clinics or one-on-one support.  The service is free, confidential and we can come to you at any time - wherever you are.  

We know quitting is tough and group programmes enable you to give up with family, friends or work colleagues. Chances are, if those around you are determined to break the habit, you will be too. The programme includes weekly support and on enrolment we can provide free patches, lozenges and gum as well as advice on vaping.
