For the comfort of everyone and to promote health we have a smoke free environment.
All wards and the hospital grounds are non-smoking so that anyone on Trust premises will not be exposed to passive smoking. This is in line with NHS-wide policy.
We hope you will respect this policy by not smoking. Visiting times are limited. During the time that anyone is visiting, we ask them to refrain from smoking, or to return to their car or leave the site to smoke.
We offer support to patients who are smokers. Information about this is available at your pre-op assessment (if you are due to come to Torbay Hospital for surgery) and in a leaflet available on our wards.
Please note that electronic cigarettes must not be used, charged or their batteries charged within any of the Trust’s buildings or vehicles.
