"Staff smoking"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

To hull royal. I from hull but live in kent now . I come home a lot to see my family , had to take my dad to his doctor at hull royal, I was socked to see the staff out side near the bus stop smoking with they on, this dos not look nice for the hospital and for people who do not smoke, why should my family walk pass staff who are smoking out the hospital than they go back onto the wards smelling of smoke ? Not a good impression on the hospital or your staff,
