Smoke-free King’s

King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a smoke-free Trust. Patients, visitors and staff are not permitted to smoke anywhere in the hospital or its grounds. This includes the use of e-cigarettes and vapes.

Patients should expect to be asked about their smoking by clinical staff and to be offered support.

For inpatients we offer evidence-based treatment for smoking including the full range of nicotine replacement therapies and other prescribed medications. Staff are not permitted to take patients off the ward to smoke.

Get support to quit
