It also applies to the Rosie Maternity Hospital.

The Trust's Chief Executive Dr Keith McNeil says it's in accordance with national guidelines that hospitals should be smoke free.

"It sends a message that we're not just about treating people here, we want society as a whole to be healthier," he said.

"It's very important from that point of view that we don't condone smoking on the site anywhere."
