Guy’s and St Thomas’ goes smoke free – our services to help patients stop smoking
 

From 19 June patients and visitors will no longer be permitted to smoke anywhere in our hospital and community premises.  At Guy's and St Thomas' we have a team of stop smoking advisers working with inpatients, outpatients and in the community to provide excellent evidence-based support to smokers to help them quit.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ decision to go smoke-free is in line with National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance issued in 2013, which recommends that all hospital sites should be smoke-free. It will also apply to e-cigarettes. Our dedicated stop smoking service has hospital and community based clinics. We provide free stop smoking advice and support to help patients stop smoking for good. 

 

What do we offer?

  • Trained advisers to help patients decide when’s the best time to stop and how to succeed
  • Regular sessions to help and support patients to quit
  • A choice of medications to suit patient level of smoking and preference, available free or on prescription
  • Carbon monoxide tests to keep patients motivated by showing reduced carbon monoxide blood levels quitting.

We accept referrals from GPs, community services and other health professionals. Patients can also self-refer.
