Abstract Background:Stopping smoking at any time has considerable benefits but for people using secondary care services there are additional benefits including shorter length of stays, reduced prescribing requirements and fewer complications . Those accessing secondary care are often more receptive to and having greater capacity to benefit from smoking cessation messages thus presenting a unique opportunity for intervention. 28% of hospital bed days are estimated to be related to smoking attributable illness and the impact on the NHS locally is significant accounting for:• 98,100 GP appointments and 22,700 inpatient and outpatient appointments per annum• Costing £23.1 million per annumMethod:Northumbria Healthcare FT committed to the organisation being completely smokefree across all sites by March 2018. The approach will ensure work is built in rather than bolt on with commitment and responsibility for delivering smokefree spanning the organisation from board to ward: :• Embedding the delivery of smokefree across the entire HR process from recruitment to appraisal• Focus groups and insight work with staff and services users• Embedding smoking status recording in Electronic Patient Records• Inclusion in Business Unit action plans to ensure director level oversight• A robust set of metrics to evaluate progress and drive delivery • Collaboration across the system to facilitate seamless support across and between servicesEarly data shows:• Increased completeness of smoking status recording• An increase in referrals to stop smoking support services• Reductions in smoking prevalence on admission amongst orthopaedics patients
