Smokefree NHS grounds

The days of smoking on NHS grounds have drawn to a close.

This ambitious move to achieve smokefree status in the grounds of every hospital, health centre and NHS building across NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is part of a national drive to create a tobacco free generation within Scotland by 2034. 

Our commitment is to provide a smokefree, clean and healthy environment for all staff, patients and visitors to work and visit.

This policy applies to all staff, patients and visitors. 

Smokefree means –

  • Smoking is not allowed on any NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde grounds, this includes all buildings, vehicles and car parks.   Mental Health units are now also smokefree, Quit Your Way is available in these facilities, call 0141 211 6564.


E-cigarettes can be used on our grounds, but NOT within buildings, we would also ask that people do not use them at main entrances, fire exits and any other doorways. 

For charging and storage instructions please see E-Cigarette Guidance below.
