NELFT are proud to be a smoke free organisation
NELFT are proud to have been smoke free from 1 October 2015. This is part of our aim to create a healthier environment for staff, service users, patients and visitors and to ensure that we comply with legislation. Smokefree applies to all areas in the trust including wards, buildings, grounds and in vehicles.
Nobody is able to smoke on any NELFT site, including service users in inpatient areas, and there is no designated area where the use of cigarettes is allowed.
The policy in line with the national institute for Health and Care Excellenece (NICE 2013) guidance and Health Act (2006), which recommeneds that all hospital sites should be 100 per cent smoke-free.
