Quit Together is a new hospital-based stop smoking service for inpatients, providing support and tools to help you remain smokefree during your hospital stay.
This service will be offered in cardiac and respiratory wards to start with, before being rolled out to all other areas across our hospitals by January 2023. You will be asked if you smoke during the admission process, and if so, offered nicotine replacement therapy such as medication, vapes or patches to help you remain as comfortable as possible.
You will then be referred to an on-site expert stop smoking advisor who will provide support throughout the duration of your stay in hospital, with continued care available following discharge.
Should you wish to take the first step to becoming smokefree prior to arriving at hospital, please get in touch with your local stop smoking service who will be happy to help.
