Is it really fair to stop psychiatric patients from smoking?
Thats what the trust that my hospital is part of is doing.
From Tuesday we have to go to the gates to smoke and noone is allowed out after 9pm. It’s going to kill me.
But theres going to be loads of patients stood at the gate and probably loads of staff too. Won’t people just go to be sociable?
I’ve been told they’re putting cameras up in the gardens to catch people smoking which also isn’t fair on us.
I understand smoking is bad for your health but what about the people who are sectioned with no leave? What are they supposed to do?
