Smokefree hospitals

Smokefree sign

UHDB Trusts' campaign , 'Think Again', highlights the ban on smoking anywhere in hospital grounds.

We are committed to creating a healthier place for patients, visitors and staff and need support from patients and visitors to keep the hospital and grounds smokefree.

Our Think Again campaign focuses on:

  • Ensuring patients and visitors are aware before they arrive that our hospitals and grounds are a smokefree zone.
  • Supporting patients whilst they are in hospital. To ensure we make every contact count we will be offering inpatients access to nicotine replacement therapies and support information/services.
  • Reminding patients and visitors if you see them smoking on hospital grounds that it is a smokefree zone.
