Vikki’s story

Creating a cleaner environment for everyone

There wasn’t a more fitting day than No Smoking Day (13 March 2019) to announce that we will become smoke free from 1 September 2019 to protect the wellbeing of our staff, patients and visitors, so that is what we did!

To create a healthier environment for everyone, smoking on any of our trust sites will not be permitted from this date.

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