Smoking

As a healthcare facility we endorse a smoke free environment. Consequently, hospital policy prohibits smoking within the hospital buildings and front entrance area. In line with relevant legislation, from 1 January 2015 the hospital campus is smoke-free.

 

This legislation demands completely smoke-free environments at all hospitals and health facilities in Queensland. The law applies to the use of all smoking products, including regular cigarettes and devices commonly known as electronic cigarettes. On-the-spot fines apply for breaches of the tobacco laws.
