Audio System: Anonymous 'please do not smoke'

Taunton & Somerset NHS Foundation Trust


Smoking in public areas can be an issue and it’s not always easy to ask someone not to smoke.

In association with Taunton & Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, whose specialist smoking cessation midwife Hayley Stone instigated the initiative, we have produced a series of 8 different ‘please do not smoke’ messages that have been installed into a speaker system package and used as a tool to help stop or reduce smoking in public areas. Anyone can press the push button so that the message is played anonymously.

Lucy Rexworthy, Musgrove Park Hospital’s Smokefree Lead was instrumental in implementing this system and believes these audio clips have great potential to prevent smoking.

“Rolling out the PA systems across the hospital entrances has been a fantastic project to work on. The local children and parents who helped us record the messages have been brilliant and deserve tremendous recognition. What the Smokefree team believe to be so great about this roll-out is that not only can our colleagues activate the system but patients and visitors too. We know that to change the culture of smoking on site, we will need the support of the public and we truly hope that incentives like this one will make it easier for the public to engage with our campaign to have an entirely smoke free hospital site".
