Consultants refuse to accept GP referrals for smokers


Totally agree with the ban.I have lost track of the number of patients with severe vascular disease including amputees who refuse to stop smoking.Not only does this totally nullify any benefits of treatment it greatly increases the burden on the taxpayer.When you have a free at point of delivery service like the NHS patients become irresponsible and expect that everything is their God given right.
