Turriff Hospital is smoke free
Turriff Hospital's grounds are now smoke free - this means no-one will be allowed to smoke anywhere on site at any of the hospital's premises, including all external areas.
If you are visiting a friend or relative in a hospital, you will not be allowed to smoke anywhere in the hospital building, or in the grounds. Plan your visit to the hospital by bringing a nicotine replacement product, such as gum or a patch, to help reduce cravings. If you need advice on which nicotine replacement product is right for you, ask your pharmacist, or contact our smoking advice service on 0500 600 332 about quitting.
Patients who stay over in hospital will not be allowed to smoke at all anywhere on the hospital site. That includes the outside areas. We encourage patients to give up smoking. However, if you can't go without smoking and don't want to give up, you can ask ward staff for a nicotine replacement product to help reduce cravings.
What does it mean for you?
