What I liked
I accompanied my friend to the A&E Dept at TGH today. She was seen quickly - despite the Dept appearing to be quite busy and we were soon on our way.
What could be improved
On our way out of the Dept we had to walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke from the people that were smoking outside (I am asthmatic and cigarette smoke makes me wheezy), we walked up to the front entrance to the Hartshead building and to get in the entrance we had to, once again, walk though a cloud of cigarette smoke. We had tea and toast (1st class by the way) in physio tea bar and then left to get the bus. Both back outside the Hartshead building and at the bus stop there were people smoking. One person actually blew it in my face and tutted when I wafted it away. I though the whole site was a designated no smoking area? Why is more not done to enforce this?
Please do more to enforce the no smoking ban - can only be good for peoples health and the image of TGH when there aren't a load of cigarette ends everywhere
