There is no longer any discussion about the dangers of smoking for health. That is why the SAG likes to actively support people who want to quit smoking. That is why we have a special ‘Stop Smoking’ program. This consists of guidance from the practice assistant and / or general practitioner. The program is focused on permanently eliminating the unhealthy behavior.

For patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus the support provided by the practice assistant or general practitioner in smoking cessation forms part of the diabetes care. Health insurances covers the costs.
