The Trust has in place a stop smoking service and does not permit employees to smoke on its premises or in uniform. Staff who are smokers are encouraged, in accordance with agreed public health messages to stop smoking. Staff are provided with training to support the Making Every Contact Count and are required through contacts with the public to explore with service users their lifestyle habits including smoking.
These same messages are used with staff who are identified as smokers by line managers.
