FIONA Johnstone appears to have taken it upon herself to be our socio-economic political and ethical guardian.

Quite a substantial remit for an appointment to an NHS board.

Attempting to intoduce a nosmoking policy around hospital grounds is both hypocritical and unethical, I would suggest.

Setting pre-conditions for people to attend a hospital is worrying.

I have emailed her recently and requested that safe, warm sheltered areas be made available for visitors and patients as soon as possible.
