Smoke free site and service awareness amongst hospital staff: a survey in an acute cancer centre

Peter Mackereth, Maycock Paula, Orrett Linda


The purpose of our survey was to identify the awareness of the smoking cessation policy and smoking habits of staff within the hospital. Hospital employees were asked to complete a short questionnaire on their awareness of the smoking cessation policy and their smoking habits. A total of 325 members of staff completed the questionnaires. 99% of respondents were aware of the hospital site being smoke free. There was less awareness around smoking cessation services for staff, patients and caregivers. There were 23 current smokers, of which 12 expressed interest in stopping smoking. The sample was 13% of the total workplace and our plans are to promote and repeat the survey in 2015.
