Woodend Hospital - Aberdeen

Smoking, alcohol and drugs

Smoking is now completely prohibited on NHS Grampian sites and premises, electronic cigarettes may not be used indoors. If you smoke regularly this may cause you concern. We recommend that you bring a safe, medically regulated form of nicotine with you so that you don't experience cravings or withdrawal symptoms.

Nicotine in gum, lozenges, mouth spray or an inhalator are all safe ways to beat short-term cravings. These can be bought in supermarkets and are available free in community pharmacies. If you would like advice about this, or support to stop smoking please call our Smoking Advice Service on 0500 600 332.

Alcohol must not be consumed in the hospital or its grounds. NHS Grampian does not accept unauthorised drugs or illicit substances being brought on to its premises.
