Smoke free

Smoke-free

We’re a smoke-free site, so smoking isn’t allowed inside the buildings or in our grounds of any of our premises.

If you smoke, please consider bringing fast-acting nicotine replacement therapy (such as lozenges or a mist spray, which can be bought from a chemist)  for the duration of your hospital stay.

E-cigarettes or ENDS

Our smoke-free policy prohibits the use of E-cigarettes or electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) on our premises due to their realistic nature and the negative impression they give.
