In January 2014, Cambridge University Hospitals became a smoke-free site.
Smoking is not permitted inside any of the Trust’s buildings or on the hospital grounds and no smoking signs are displayed across the site.
The smoke free policy supports CUH in promoting the health and wellbeing of staff, patients and visitors to the Trust. Smoking is the main cause of preventable illness and premature death in England and causes a wide range of diseases and medical conditions.
Banning smoking across the hospital site creates a cleaner, more pleasant environment for everybody and stops smoke from drifting inside and impacting the health of our inpatients.
If you are seen smoking whilst at CUH you may be asked to stop by a member of staff.
