Response from Northwick Park Hospital

We share your frustration about people smoking in the front of the hospital, and do ‘police’ the area, either through our security staff or indeed senior staff. Unfortunately our resources do not stretch to providing a constant presence in this area and we have no real powers of enforcement and rely on members of the public acquiescing to our requests not too smoke. Please be assured we are constantly seeking to minimise smoking on our premises.
