Aim We aimed to determine the prevalence of smoking and smoking cessation advice received by inpatients in Beaumont Hospital and compared results to previous similar studies.

Method Cross-sectional survey where we interviewed eligible in-patients over a two-week period.

Results 14.8% (30/203) of participants were current smokers, which is lower than the smoking prevalence found by previous studies. The rate of cessation advice delivery was 53.3% (16/30). An increasing socioeconomic gap between smokers and non-smokers over time was found.

Discussion There remains limited provision of smoking cessation advice to inpatients.
