Smoke Free Campus

This hospital is a smoke free campus.

From 1 September 2016, legislation in Queensland prohibits smoking within the hospital grounds and for five (5) metres beyond the hospital boundary. There is also no smoking allowed within five (5) metres of public transport waiting points such as bus stops and taxi ranks. This applies to all persons including staff, doctors, volunteers, students, patients and visitors.

The laws are being enforced by government environmental health officers who will issue on the spot personal fines of at least $240 to individuals who ignore warnings and continue to smoke. We appreciate your support in promoting a smoke-free environment for all in our hospital community.
