Kingston Hospital has a smoke-free policy and smoking is not permitted within hospital buildings or grounds.
Patients coming to the hospital for treatment will be asked to consider giving up smoking to improve their health. The programme is also available for visitors, members of the public and hospital staff.
Evidence shows that 70% of smokers are actively thinking about giving up smoking therefore it’s important that we give people the support they need to succeed. Committing to giving up smoking will help Kingston Hospital reach one of its CQUINS* (Commissioning for Quality and Innovation Scheme) targets and means the hospital could get an additional 5% of its income from NHS Kingston, the local Primary Care Trust.
All funds raised will go back into supporting the hospital and its services.
Patients, staff and visitors are all welcome to attend our stop smoking sessions where we provide an evidence-based service which can quadruple your chance of stopping smoking successfully. There’s nothing to lose so why not call us today on 020 8546 7711 (ext 2081) to make an appointment.
