BOSSES at Weston General Hospital are urging people visiting wards not to smoke outside building entrances.
Director of nursing, Ian Bramley, has called the act ‘unsightly and unpleasant’ in a message to people attending the Uphill facility.
He says the smoke is increasing litter and causing a fire risk and health hazard.
He said: “We are asking smokers to be considerate and move off the hospital grounds to smoke.”
