Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust is smokefree from 1 October 2018. Smokefree means patients; staff and visitors are not able to smoke in the hospital grounds.

We are doing this to help improve the long-term health of the people we care for. We understand this might be distressing but we are here to help.

We can provide mental health care alongside supporting both service users and staff to become non-smokers. If you are not ready to stop, we can still help.

For support and advice on stopping smoking, please go to www.nhs.uk/smokefree
