Our Trust – like all others – is smoke-free. This is to help us to support a clean air policy across Calderdale and Kirklees. Our aim is to protect our patients, colleagues and visitors from second-hand smoke and help provide a better environment for all.

Colleagues, patients and visitors cannot smoke or vape anywhere in the hospital grounds, including gardens, car parks and waiting areas.

Quitting smoking can improve your health, along with regular exercise, reducing your alcohol intake and having a healthy diet, so we will be offering more support and guidance to help colleagues, patients and visitors quit smoking. 

Anyone who would like to give up smoking can access free help and support by contacting smoking cessation services. Full details are available on our intranet pages.
