Section 5 – Equalities

The basic perimeter size of 15 metres for a no-smoking area outside certain hospital buildings will potentially impact more on some people than others.

For that reason we seek your views on how the proposals may impact on people with respect to age, gender, sex, sexual orientation and identity, ethnicity, religion or belief, disability, pregnancy and maternity or socioeconomic disadvantage?

Please consider both potentially positive and negative impacts, and, if applicable, advise on any mitigating actions that could be taken.

Question 8 Do you consider there to be any positive or negative impacts on equality as a result of the proposals in this consultation.
Please tick one Yes No Don’t Know
If you have comments on any potential impact on equalities please record these here together with evidence and advice on mitigating actions.
