Smoking and mental health inpatient services
I hope you're well.
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please can you provide separate information for each of your hospitals/facilities providing mental health inpatient services:
- Is the hospital smokefree (i.e. does not allow smoking anywhere on hospital grounds) and, if yes, what date did this happen?
- How many patients/service users have absconded/gone AWOL while on leave for each separate calendar year since 2000 (or for each year you have information)?
- Of these, how many patients/service users have absconded/gone AWOL while on leave to have a cigarette or where the report mentions cigarettes for each separate calendar year since 2000 (or for each year you have information)?
- When looking at all incident reports (not just those in which a patient absconded), how many incident reports mentioned "smoking", "smoke", "cigarette" or "lighter" a) in 2017, b) in 2018 and c) in 2019?
If this request will come in above the cost limit, please advise how I might refine it.

Under the Act, the Health Board is required to supply the information to you within 20 working days. If this is not possible, a further letter will be sent advising you of the progress made in satisfying your request.

Hello, the following clarification of this request may be helpful:
To clarify questions 2 and 3, I would be looking for the number of occasions, rather than the number of individual patients.
I.E if one patient had failed to return from leave on three occasions that year, that this would count as 3 rather than 1 in the figures.
Thank you for your email, we will action accordingly.
In light with your change to your request please note your revised deadline is 4 March 2020.
However we will try to get this responded to as soon as possible.
