Our hospital sites and grounds are smoke free

Lancashire Teaching Hospitals is a smoke-free organisation. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on any of our premises, either inside or outside the buildings. 

Our staff will ask you about your smoking status when you come to hospital and will offer you support, including Nicotine Replacement Therapy to help manage your symptoms of withdrawal.

The use of e-cigarettes is also not permitted anywhere on our hospital sites, as they are not a regulated product or endorsed by the NHS. As an alternative, we can prescribe evidence-based products to help with any withdrawal from nicotine, and are able to refer to the local Stop Smoking Service if you wish to stop smoking altogether.

People who attend the Stop Smoking Service are four times more likely to quit smoking successfully. 

If you want to stop smoking, you can also contact the Quit Squad, freephone 0800 328 6297.
