To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the use of e-cigarettes within hospital grounds.

The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring consistency in local smoking policies on vaping on hospital grounds. We are currently consulting with NHS Boards in order to reach a consensus on whether vaping should be allowed on hospital grounds through a consistent national approach.
