    Hospital smoking ban for Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan approved.

    E-cigarettes will also be banned because while they are being promoted as aids to stopping smoking Dr Sian Griffiths of the health board's public health team claimed there was little evidence to suggest they worked.

    Ahead of the meeting, Dr Sharon Hopkins, public health director of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, said the proposals had been 18 months in the planning because officials recognised a ban would "not be easy and patients and the public would have to be supported".

    I thought that doctors were supposed to be well informed professionals, commited to helping others.

    And finger wagging will also be dispensed with the useless NRT, no doubt.

    I have just been in hospital for 10 days. I would of gone nuts without being able to vape. The doctors and nurses were gr8 about it and usually showed an interest in my e-cig when they saw it.
