Brighton hospital boss gives up smoking again

Brighton hospital boss gives up smoking again | Brighton and Hove News:
Duncan Selbie, chief executive of Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, said: “We have attempted to go smoke-free before but it is fair to say it didn’t work and not least because we were inconsistent in applying the policy.
“As a compromise we tried introducing smoking shelters but I think most would agree these have not worked either as our grounds look like an ashtray.
“All or nothing has to be the way forward, so all it is, and this time we mean it.
“This absolutely applies to staff, and to the relatives and visitors of those in our care, under any and all circumstances.
“It also applies, other than in exceptional circumstances, to patients though of course discretion will be needed.”

Sadly I mostly put this story here for the comments.
Some of them are great reading,some are of course the usual anti propaganda.
