The staff are wonderful and I have nothing but admiration for their commitment to their patients - my comment is regarding the Respiratory section. But why oh why do you allow smoking outside the main entrance. It is possitively disgusting. I have had to walk through the fugg four times a day for nearly five weeks. I appreciate that it is a hospital and not a police state but why put up the signs to say no smoking and then allow it continue without any consideration for those who have to walk through it. Last night at 7.50pm there were 19 people gathered around smoking 5 right in front of the automatic doors - the smoke was seeping in making the whole of the reception area unpleasant. When walking to the bus I also noticed that one of the 'private' ambulance drivers was also smoking in his cab - surely as this is his place of work, it is illegal? Come on RUH have the courage of your convictions and stamp it out - or have a designated room for those who wish to smoke then those of us who don't will not be choked and poisoned by passive smoking.
