Everyone can help save a life in 30 seconds

It doesn’t matter what your role is in the hospital you can help save lives by being part of the QUIT Programme.  

Anyone can give very brief advice – to a patient, visitor or staff member just:


Ask Have you smoked in the last month?


Advise that the best way to stop smoking is with specialist support and medication and that both of these are easily available in the hospital* or from their local stop smoking service.


Act now Offer to tell the ward staff or Tobacco Treatment Advisor that they would like some support or medication.

*For in patients, parents of children who are inpatients, some outpatients & staff
