Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust (OHFT) will be smoke-free from 2 March 2016 across all its sites.
As a healthcare provider OHFT has a duty to encourage good health and feels an important part of this is providing a setting that promotes this.
This will apply to all the trust’s buildings and grounds and to all staff, patients and members of the public visiting our sites.
If you are visiting one of our sites and feel that you will find it difficult not to smoke, you can get help and support via the following sources:
Local health centres and surgeries across Oxfordshire have trained stop smoking advisers who can provide one-to-one advice and support. Oxfordshire pharmacies now have trained stop smoking advisers who will also be ready to help.
The Buckinghamshire NHS Smoke-free Support Service offers free confidential support and advice throughout Buckinghamshire to smokers.
Nicotine Replacement Therapy (patches, gum, etc.) can be obtained via the stop smoking adviser at prescription cost.
The Wiltshire Stop Smoking Service has trained advisors in GP surgeries and most pharmacies across the county offering one-to-one support.
Contact them on 0300 003 4562 or visit their website to find out more or ask about alternative support options.
