Smokefree HospitalThe Bay of Plenty District Health Board is committed to providing a smokefree environment. Our buildings and grounds at both Tauranga and Whakatāne Hospitals are completely smokefree.

If you are admitted to hospital you will be offered free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to help you to remain comfortably smokefree while you are with us.

Staff can organise a referral for you as a patient, your whānau, visitors and friends to the Hāpainga Stop Smoking Service. Information about the service can be found on their website by clicking on their logo below.
