Ban smoking and make it punishable by law if anyone smokes at entrances of U.K. hospitals.

A young cardiac Surgeon in the USA lost his life trying to stop a member of the public to refrain from smoking just outside the hospital he worked in . He was punched at the back of his head, after which he was comatose for a month, before having to be taken off a ventilator.

     We see a lot of patients and their relatives smoking just outside and at entrances of the hospitals in the U.K. too, making the air completely unbreathable. I feel that there should be a law which bans and fines people for smoking in British hospital grounds. Openly smoking outside hospitals sends a wrong message to the public as well, that even though cigarette smoking can cause lung/ oral cancer, high blood pressure, arterial disease of the legs and other cancers, it is still ok to smoke and make others passively smoke in the hospitals where these diseases are treated.

     Enough is enough, and it's about time the British parliament passes a fitting law that saves lives!
