Alarm outside hospital tells smokers to stop

28th March 2012

People who light cigarettes outside the £300m Forth Valley Royal Hospital near Larbert in central Scotland will trigger an alarm and loudspeaker message telling them to stop.

Health chiefs plan to install the device near the main entrance after it found people were ignoring no-smoking signs which tell them that smoking is banned throughout the grounds of the hospital. If it proves successful, the alarms could be fitted close to other entrances to the hospital to stop smoking outside the premises.
