MAN OF THE PEOPLE: NHS snoops are the puff baddies.

Byline: EAMONN HOLMES

NHS Trusts are threatening disciplinary action against doctors and nurses caught smoking anywhere in hospital grounds.

Think about it. A top surgeon or a gifted nurse could be suspended for having a fag, quite legally, in the car park.

Indeed, they could be squealed on by someone like the Healthy Lifestyles and Smoking Cessation Advisor hired by Southwark Council.

Trust chiefs also want to ban home visits to people who smoke. It's a busybody's dream, creating endless work for state-funded nosey parkers.

The cost of running the country has risen by 80 per cent since this government took power. Is it any wonder?
