"Smoking on site"

My son took me to the hospital for a dermatology appointment, all the staff who attended to me were lovely, so kind and caring I could not have a word to say against them.
However, I was very disappointed that I could not find a wheelchair when I needed one. I get very breathless and knew I would need a wheel chair to get from the entrance to the dermatology clinic. My son and I looked for a chair near the entrance where they are kept but could not see any. I then realized all the chairs were being used by patients who had come from different wards in their pyjamas to sit outside and smoke cigarettes.
I thought the whole site was supposed to be smoke free. I also find it difficult to come to terms with the fact that people in need, like myself, cannot use the wheelchairs provided whilst they are being occupied, not used, by patients who should not be smoking on the site.
