The health board could enforce a smoking ban which could see staff fired for carrying tobacco on hospital grounds.
Not only this but the old chestnut of "smokers should not be treated if they don't stop" has cropped up again.
Listen below as Eddie Douthwaite, Chairman of Freedom2Choose Scotland, responding on Five Live radio, goes up against some harridan who thinks it is totally fair to withhold treatment from non compliant smokers. He is also up against a 'patients rights' group in Scotland who's only interested in non-smoking patients rights, smokers, to her, can go to hell.
Remind you of anyone?
In the second interview Eddie gave today on Radio Scotland he goes up against the same woman from the patients rights group.
