On the Southmead Hospital site there are two dedicated shelters - across the road from the main entrance of the Brunel building and near the Emergency Department entrance. We ask that if you must smoke that you use these shelters.
We are very keen to help people in their efforts to stop smoking, why not call the NHS smoking advice service on 0800 022 4332 or see your GP? The benefits begin the minute you stop smoking.
