Forward Thinking Hospital Chief to Allow Vaping?


Chris Long from the Hull Royal Infirmary believes e-cigarettes could be an answer for the hospital. 

Writing about e-cigarettes, the Hull Daily Mail quote Mr Long as saying that attempting to get people to stop smoking during stressful admissions to hospital doesnt work. 

He said, I think a much more humane, and probably liberal, approach to the use of e-cigarettes in and around hospital would be a significant help to those patients.
I have a view that many people find e-cigarettes a much more satisfactory substitute than chewing gum or patches. I am not aware of any evidence that they create harm. 

Smoking is currently banned on Hull Hospital grounds, and Public Health Director Julia Weldon has been an ardent supporter of smoking bans and has used her most recent public health report to challenge smoking as a social norm. 

However, there are voices in favour of e-cigarettes.

City public health manager Tim Fielding said e-cigarettes were a huge issue and users should not be forced into smoking shelters alongside cigarette smokers as calls grow for similar restrictions to smoking in public places.
He said, There is strong evidence that the benefits vastly outweigh the harms. E-cigarettes, from what we know at the moment, are an enormous opportunity to vastly improve rates of morbidity.
