No smoke without...

I recently attended North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple, where I received the highest standard of care and courtesy from the staff, and would like to say thanks to them.

However, I was shocked on approaching the entrance, where a number of patients were smoking while sitting outside under a very large notice which said “This is a no-smoking site.”

I found this appalling and was told by a member of staff to who I commented that: “The nurses tell them it’s OK.”

Perhaps the hospital authorities could advise if they will clamp down on this practice.
