Hospital smoking ban plan for Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan

Cardiff and Vale health board has agreed to ban smoking from all its sites.

It will involve removing smoking shelters and the recruitment of a smoking enforcement officer to support increased patrols by Cardiff Council litter teams.

All other health boards already have a smoking ban in place.

Dr Sian Griffiths, a member of the health board's public health team, put the case to the board, who agreed to bring in the new rules from 1 October.

She spoke to Felicity Evans on Good Morning Wales before the meeting.
