Push-button announcements warn smokers at hospitals

West Wales hospitals are tackling smokers on site with new push-button speaker announcements, voiced by local school children

Hywel Dda University Health Board is the first in Wales to launch the system to curb smoking at Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire hospitals.

It enables people to anonymously push a red button which triggers an announcement reminding them hospitals are smoke-free.

The bilingual messages were recorded by pupils at Pembrokeshire's Wolfscastle school and they went to launch the scheme at Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest, along with the health board's Rebecca Evans.
