NHS Grampian's plan for a smoking ban on its premises has suffered a setback.

The board had hoped to implement a complete ban for staff and patients by the start of next year.

The Scotland Patients Association earlier said a ban move could bring health benefits, but unions said it was unfair and unworkable.
