What could be improved
I have found it completely unacceptable, when visiting an elderly relative on several occasions. That I am forced to pass through, at the main entrance to the wards. A throng of patients, visitors, staff etc who insist on smoking outside this entrance. I was under the impression that the hospital operated a "No Smoking" policy. Which is not only policy, but also law!! And yet despit clear and large signs displayed showing this prohibtion, the practice is allowed to continue without intervention nor prevention by either staff or security, why is this?????
