The staff at Milton Keynes University Hospital are committed to helping you and your family improve and stay well. One of the best ways you can improve your health is to quit smoking, to support you on this journey, and to protect employees and visitors from the effects of second smoke that has freed us from smoke. This means that smoking is prohibited anywhere in the hospital.
If you smoke, we can help you during and outside your trip. We have a special smoking cessation clinic in the Maple Department of the hospital for face support. If you want more flexibility, we can offer a phone support clinic. We are also opening a monthly smoking stand near the main hospital reception, please feel free to contact us for a quick chat with one of our senior counselors.
To offer 24/7 support to anyone who wants to quit smoking, download our new Free mobile application, My Quit Route, developed by a team of clinical, health and research psychologists based in the UK. The application is free to download for anyone working or living in Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes.
My Out Route is a fully personalized application available 24/7 on Android and iOS devices and is most effective when used in conjunction with smoking cessation expert support.
