'Clearer' no smoking signs part of NHS recommendations

2nd February 2011 | No Smoking Signs

Clearer no smoking signs have been proposed as one way to improve conditions at NHS sites in Grampian, Scotland.

A meeting of board members in Aberdeen yesterday (Tuesday February 1st), heard from its medical director Dr Roelf Dijkhuizen, who is heading up a review of the board's tobacco policy, the Press & Journal reports.

Dr Dijkhuizen said that instead of implementing an outright ban on smoking, creating more designated smoking areas should in fact be a priority.

But while installing new shelters could cost £150,000, more imaginative ways must be brought in to find a cheaper alternative.

"Rather than spending £150,000, we should look at alternative ways of providing designated areas without forcing people to stand in the rain," Dr Dijkhuizen was quoted by the newspaper as telling the board.

Other recommendations included installing clearer no smoking signs and improving NHS employees' knowledge of the location of smoking areas.

Recently, Health Facilities Scotland launched a new campaign to help health boards manage security at NHS sites across the country.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800380034-ADNFCR
