    The Trust's No Smoking Policy is about smoking not being permitted in or around Trust properties.  Please follow this link to our policy - https://www.eastamb.nhs.uk/Policies/hr/no-smoking-policy.pdf.  We would like to draw your attention to section 5.2:
     
    Subject to the constraints set out above, employees will be able to smoke in uniform during their breaks, but should make every attempt to cover their uniform.
     
    In short, you do not have to give up smoking.
