Stop smoking

We understand that many people who smoke really want to quit in order to improve their health. This is important not just for people with health conditions that have been impacted by smoking, but also for people who are still well but at risk of smoking related illness. There are many forms of medication that can help you stop smoking. You can get additional support through self-help materials, your local pharmacy or GP and in some boroughs, community support.

All Royal Free London sites are smoke free

The Royal Free London went smoke free in October 2014. This means that patients, visitors and staff are not permitted to smoke (or use e-cigarettes) on any trust premises or grounds, including all outside areas. If you are a patient or visitor, please read our 'Your smoke free hospital' leaflet to understand our expectations while you are on trust premises, and the help and support available to you to stop smoking.
