"Leighton Hospital feels like 'smoker central'"

Good care (although dreadful timekeeping) at Leighton Hospital. But the place is smoker central.
Main reception involves running the gauntlet of smokers (including patients on drips and in gowns! ), and the Eye Care waiting area was stunk out because someone was smoking outside under an open window.
I cannot imagine what possesses people to stand outside the cancer centre smoking. The bus shelter was also reeking.
It took some doing to find out that the site is apparently smoke-free. Big signs outside maternity and some offices, but nowhere else seems to have the privilege of fresh air. Lots of uniformed staff waving fags around too.
I suggest you make the location of the smoking shelters clear and put up much larger and ruder 'do NOT smoke anywhere else' signs.
