Since 1 August 2008, smoking has been banned in all NHS Lanarkshire grounds.
It means people are no longer allowed to light-up anywhere inside NHS Lanarkshire premises or within its grounds – including areas around hospital, clinic and health centre entrances, and in vehicles parked on NHS premises.
The revised policy reinforces NHS Lanarkshire’s aim of promoting and protecting the health of both the public and NHS staff.
If you want to stop smoking, call our helpline on 08452 17 77 07. You can also text ‘Advice’ to 81066.
