Smoking in all enclosed/ indoor public places and workplaces in the United Kingdom (UK) is illegal. Therefore, Kirby Road Surgery has a ‘No Smoking’ policy in place in all areas of the building as well as the external premises.
Patients found smoking will be requested to leave. Where difficulties arise, the police will be called without delay and without challenging the offender further.
Patients repeating the offence will be removed from the practice list.
Electronic cigarettes must not be used on practice premises, as they emit a nicotine vapour.
