The Department supports the implementation of smokefree policies across all hospitals in England. The Government’s tobacco control plan for England published in July 2017 reiterates our ambition to achieve smokefree mental health services by the end of 2018 and to see all National Health Service estates becoming smoke-free by 2019/20, as set out in NHS England’s ‘Next steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View’ mandate.
