4 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 Smoking is a major cause of illness and early death and the government is taking active measures to decrease smoking behaviour by reducing the number of public areas in which smoking is permitted. 1.2 As one of the main providers of health services in Tameside and Glossop, the Trust is committed to eliminating smoking on Trust premises, and to assisting staff, patients and visitors to achieve greater health through smoking cessation. 1.3 On July 1st 2007, the Government introduced a new law to make virtually all enclosed public places and workplaces in England smoke free. A smokefree country ensures a healthier environment, so everyone can socialise and work free from passive smoke inhalation. 1.4 E-cigarettes are unregulated nicotine products for which there is insufficient evidence of safety. In view of this the use of e-cigarettes are not permitted at Tameside Hospital 2. AIM 2.1 The aim of this policy is to: Ensure that non smokers can work in or visit the Trust in a smoke free environment.
