Neath Port Talbot Hospital


Did you know that the majority of people (77%) in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend are non-smokers?

Want to join them? We can help! If you are thinking of quitting smoking and would like support please call Stop Smoking Wales on 0800 085 2219 or visit www.stopsmokingwales.com.

Our hospitals are smoke-free environments

Most smokers respect other patients and visitors and don't smoke outside our hospital entrances or in our grounds. If you smoke, please be just as considerate and don't light up. All our hospitals are smoke-free, which means smoking isn't allowed in buildings and grounds, including car parks and entrances. Thanks for your co-operation and respect for others.
