Creating a cleaner environment for everyone

We are a SMOKEFREE trust because we want to protect the wellbeing of our staff, patients and visitors.

To create a healthier environment for everyone, smoking on any of our trust sites is not permitted.

We took the decision to go smoke free to protect and improve the health and wellbeing of all service users, employees, visitors and contractors. The decision was supported by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Public Health guidance, which recommends that all hospital sites should be smoke free.
