RCP comment on NICE guidance on smoking cessation in secondary care: acute, maternity and mental health services

Commenting on the guidance Sir Richard Thompson, president of the Royal College of Physicians said:

As doctors we are especially aware of the harm that smoking causes to health, and the benefits of stopping smoking. Admission to hospital is a particularly important time and opportunity to stop smoking, and hospital, of all places, should be ready and able to help smokers to do so. We welcome this guidance and the RCP will do all it can to ensure that our hospitals become smoke-free.
